Baileys to renew wedding vows on 50th anniversary
Everett Bailey married Ann Gabbert on Sept. 19. 1943. The couple was married by Rev. Hoke Dickinson in Portsmouth.
Mr. Bailey opened, managed, or owned numerous grocery stores throughout Centerville, Leesburg and Blanchester, finding himself in the general offices of the Kroger Co. in Cincinnati for 13 years where he worked until his retirement in 1991. In 1980 he was licensed as a local pastor by the Methodist Church and given a charge at Butlerville, where he has pastored since.
Mrs. Bailey was co-owner of the Leesburg Supermarket and enrolled at Chatfield College in 1972, later completing her bachelor's degree in elementary education at Wilmington College and her master's degree at Xavier University in Cincinnati, enabling her to teach reading at East Clinton Schools for 14 years. She also retired in 1991.
Since their "retirement" Mr. and Mrs. Bailey have filled their time with trips to Europe and Israel; church work; hospital visitation; and the grandparenting of eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
