BAILEY, Sylvia – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sylvia Bailey at the age of 75, at the St. Catharines General Hospital on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. Sylvia was predeceased by her parents Jim and Ivy Bailey; dear mother to Wayne (Christine), Timothy, Kerry, Alison (John) Leslie, predeceased by Steven and Michael Hegarty. Former wife to Patrick Hegarty. Dear sister to Joyce, Sheila, Hazel and the late Brian. Precious grandmother to 10 beautiful grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Sylvia's warmth, humour and quick wit brought joy to all fortunate enough to have known and loved her. She was courageous in her battle with diabetes, even after it ravaged her body and took her eyesight. Her love for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren gave her the will to fight this disease and to live life to its fullest. Her laugh was contagious and her smile lit up a room and will live in the hearts of all who knew her. She will be deeply missed by family and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, April 5, 2011 at 1 p.m. at The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 503 Linwell Road, St. Catharines. Arrangements entrusted to the HULSE & ENGLISH FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 75 Church St. (905-684-6346). On-line tributes may be made at www.hulseandenglish.com.
