Bailey, Enid Irene

December 24, 1931 – October 24, 2018
at the age of 86 years

Enid was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan to George and Beatrice Anderson on December 24, 1931.  She moved to Salmon Arm with her parents and brother Elton in 1954.  Her older sister was, by that time, married and living in Powell River.
Enid worked as a bookkeeper for several years, then she and her husband, Bruce Bailey, worked as dispatchers at the downtown fire hall from 1976 until 1989.
Enid was a very kind hearted person who took special care of her husband and her father in their latter years.  When they had both passed on, she lived a quiet life in her retirement years enjoying her flower garden and her pets. 
Enid was also predeceased by her sister, Mildred Culley; and brother, Elton Anderson.
Special thanks are sent to Dr. Currie, Dr. Lourens, and to all of the staff at Lander’s Lodge and Hillside Village for their excellent care.
By Enid’s choice, there will not be a memorial service, but she will be lovingly remembered by her few remaining relatives: (Mildred’s three daughters: Faye, Lorraine and Donna; and Elton’s wife, Clara and their daughters, Jennifer and Melissa.)


  1. So sad to hear of Enid’s death. We lived next door to her for about seven years. Our kids, when they were small, would go and visit Enid (looking for a treat!). She was always good to them. I buried Bruce (I worked at Bowers) and after that the kids would check in on Enid on a regular basis. One of your family got one of our pups from our dog, Cuddles. I believe the dog was named Buster. Our thoughts are with you all.

  2. Living on Foothill Rd. we often saw Enid walking to town and would give her a ride to where ever she needed to go. She was a very independent lady and we often engaged in some lively conversations. Sadly, another fixture from Foothill Rd. gone but not forgotten. Our condolences to the families.
