Obituary - Sharon Elaine Bailie

Sharon Elaine Bailie (Sheppard) entered into eternal rest with the Lord on May 8, 2020, surrounded by her family in her Maples home.
Elaine is survived by her husband of 56-1/2-years, Ron; her beloved children, Rhonda and Cary Chafin and Ron and Jenny Bailie; and her grandsons that were her world, Aaron and Zach Chafin and Charlie and “her baby,” Robby Bailie. Elaine also leaves behind her siblings, Joanna (Mike) Adams, Phil (Pat) Sheppard, Donna (Pete) Wallace, Dean, and Deanna (Mikey) Thompson, many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Elaine will be missed dearly by everyone that knew her. She was a faithful servant of the Lord and served the Lord well during her time on Earth. She was met in Heaven by her parents, Lucille and Carl Sheppard; her brother and sister-in-law, Eldon and Sharon; and her in-laws Mary and Homer Bailie and Barbara Bradley.
Elaine entered the world August 18, 1945, in Ironton, Mo. She was raised in South St. Louis around Lafayette Park. She met the love of her life and they did their courting at White Castle and McDonald’s, with Barbara in tow.
In the early 1970s, Ron moved Elaine out to the “country,” Fenton, where they raised their family and were active members at Fenton Pentecostal Church of God. They eventually followed their daughter to House Springs, where her beloved grandchildren were raised surrounding her. When Ron and Elaine retired to Maples, Elaine became involved in the church nursery, and eventually feeding the youth on Wednesday’s to get them to church, and setting up coat and clothing drives for the community.
Elaine’s “world,” otherwise known as her grandsons, will always have fond memories of the times they shared with her. From singing songs to waking them up for school, “salve” being the cure-all for any ailment, and always having to pat their backsides, there are many to choose from. Charlie will always remember the sweets Grandma had waiting for him, especially her blackberry cobbler. Grandma would sit on the floor for hours with Robby and play with whatever toy he brought her. Zach remembers the camping trips, and Grandpa reminded him that once he was chased on his bike through Sam A. Baker Park by Grandma and would not stop. He was just saying hi to everyone! Her warm, friendly smile always comes to mind for Aaron.
Visitation was held Tuesday, May 12, at 11 a.m. to the time of service at 1 p.m. at Fox Funeral Home, 128 South Main St., Licking, MO 65542. Interment was at Rock Springs Cemetery. Online condolences may be left at www.foxfh.net. Arrangements entrusted to Fox Funeral Home.
