Obituary of Cindy Bailey

Please share a memory of Cindy to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Cynthia Louise McCord Bailey passed away surrounded by her loving family at St. Elizabeth Healthcare in Edgewood, Kentucky, on November 27, 2023. She was 73 years old.

Born on June 8, 1950, in Dubuque, Iowa, she was the daughter of Donald C. McCord and Mildred J. [Lex] McCord. Cindy was the beloved wife of 53 years to John Bailey; treasured mom of Sarah Rogers (Tommy), Jason Bailey (Lauren), and Heather Bailey (Brad Snowden); cherished sister to Jennifer Tigges (Ron) and Marie Yeager (George) and sister-in-law to Larry Bailey (Ramona); and beloved grandma Cici to Caroline, Jerry, Sloane, and Finn. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother, Jerry McCord.

Cindy met her husband, John, on a blind date in 1969. He was captivated by Cindy’s beautiful blue eyes, and after a year and some days they married in her hometown. In 1977, they settled in Northern Kentucky in order to start a family. A natural nurturer, Cindy’s life’s work both personally and professionally revolved around caring for others and their well-being. She was a registered nurse and provided care to many over the course of her career in hospitals, workplaces, and homes. Cindy possessed a knack for cooking and was adventurous in her practice. Her tastes ranged widely, from elaborate gourmet meals to homestyle cooking such as chicken and dumplings and strawberry preserves.

After retirement from nursing, Cindy filled her days practicing yoga, reading with her book club, and creating art and jewelry. She loved to travel, regularly visiting the Great Smoky Mountains and finding relaxation on cruises in the Caribbean and Alaska. She was always planning her next adventure, often inviting friends and family to make new memories together.

Cindy truly loved her friends and family and will be remembered for all the joy and enthusiasm she shared with each of them.
