August 2, 1930 - October 22, 2020

With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Charles Milton Bailey (Milt) on the afternoon of October 22, 2020, at St. Boniface Hospital.
Milt will be dearly missed by his children, Brenda, Brian and Brent (Andrea); son-in-law Bill; grandchildren, Bob, Bonnie (Ron), Blair (Alexandra), Thorrin; great-grandchildren, Kayla and Blake; sister Zoe, sister-in-law Margaret, brother-in-law Eric, and nieces and nephews. Milt was predeceased by his loving wife of 62 years, Elinor; his parents, Charles and Gladys; sister Evelyn May, sister-in-law Evelyn; brothers-in-law, Dave and Frank. Milt's sense of humour and his good-hearted teasing brought smiles to us all.
Born August 2, 1930, in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Milt shared his many stories of growing up in Saskatoon with family and friends. As a sports enthusiast he had many stories to share; friendships he made, games he played, and the players he had coached. He coached Bantam Hockey in Saskatoon, and continued coaching throughout the years. One, of many memorable stories, was heading to Vancouver in his late teens to play tennis and basketball. His basketball team played a charity event against the Globetrotters, which was a close game for a spell, until of course, the Globetrotters decided to win - by a lot!
He eventually moved back to Saskatoon and began working at Eaton's, where he met Elinor, and another adventure began. Retail was a perfect fit for Milt, he enjoyed work, and meeting people. His love of challenges and travelling resulted in accepting other retail positions in Manitoba, Ontario and British Columbia. Retirement brought them back to Manitoba. Before long, Elinor's love of painting, and Milt's love of gardening, inspired them to create beautiful garden crafts. Together they began travelling the country to attend craft shows, meeting new friends and selling their wares.
The family would like to thank the wonderful staff from Palliative Care and St. Boniface Hospital. We all realize these are tumultuous times and your care, effort and compassion are truly appreciated.
At Milt's request, there will be no service held.

  • It was awesome having the Bailey’s for neighbours, they were like family. When my son Ray was little if he was playing in the back yard I’d always find him hanging next door with Milt and Elinor. You both will be greatly missed. Deepest condolences to Brenda, Brian, Brent and their families from myself and Ray ❤️ - Posted by: Margaret ( Gigi) Vermette (Neighbour) on: Nov 02, 2020

  • Growing up beside the Baileys was the best, best childhood. Mr & Mrs Bailey were the best, they were like 2nd parents to me and my siblings. Mr Bailey would come into Walmart say hi chit chat and say he’s looking for some craft item and be on his way. It was a pleasure. My deepest condolences to Brenda, Brian, Brent and Family. It was so great growing up with all of you. Mr & Mrs Bailey will be sorely miss..❤️Monique V - Posted by: Monique Vermette (Neighbor) on: Nov 02, 2020
