Obituary: Patricia (Wedl) Bailey

Patricia "Pat" (Wedl) Bailey passed away peacefully Feb. 15, 2020 at Inter-Faith Care Center in Carlton.

Due to Covid-19, the family was unable to gather and celebrate Pat. Visitation will be held 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 11 at her daughter's home at 11 Ridge Road, Esko. If you are unable to attend the service, please stop by between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. to share a story or two about Pat, visit with the family, and grab a bite to eat.

The second of three children, Pat was born May 5, 1930 to Lee and Peg Wedl in Coleraine. She was married to Bob Bailey on June 30, 1950. They raised their family in Remer. Upon retiring, Pat and Bob moved to St. George, Utah, and after Bob's passing, Pat moved to Cloquet to be closer to family.

Pat was a kind and loving person who would always put others above herself. She enjoyed being with her family, playing bingo, any cards or games, and golfing - once getting a hole in one. Her faith in God and her family were so very important to her.

Pat was preceded in death by her husband, Bob; son John; son-in-law, Dick; brother, Lee; and her parents.

She is survived by her son Bill (Angie) of San Tan Valley, Arizona; daughter, Peg Bittle of St.

George; son Dan (Judy) of Beverly, Massachusetts; son Jim (Carlene) of Vancouver, Washington; daughter Sue (Joe) Wischnewski of Esko; daughter-in-law, Mary Nyvall Bailey of Las Vegas; 13 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild; sister, Dar; sisters-in-law, Jan and Ethel; and several nieces and nephews.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Inter-Faith Care Center for all the care they provided Patricia. Arrangements by Nelson Funeral Care in Cloquet.
