Mothers’ Union members in the Diocese are very sad to report the death of Jean Bailey on 2nd April.
Jean was the Bradford Episcopal Area president for Mothers’ Union and had previously been President for the Bradford Diocese. She was a member for over 40 years and held many roles whilst in the Manchester Diocese where her husband, Rev. Richard Bailey was a parish priest.
We owe Jean a great deal as she was one of the leaders in planning our new Diocesan Mothers’ Union. She will be missed greatly for her hard work as a leader and speaker and for her wise words and her sense of humour.
Jean’s funeral was held on 12th April and her 70th birthday was celebrated by her family on 22nd April. We continue to remember Richard and the family in our prayers.
Jean Thurman (Diocesan President)
