Wendy Bailey Morris, 50, West Scranton, passed away Friday morning in the Regional Hospital of Scranton after a brief illness.
Born in Scranton, she was the daughter of Don and Peg Decker Bailey, West Scranton. She was a 1989 graduate of West Scranton High School and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from the University of Scranton. She was a lifelong member of the Jackson Street Baptist Church and was currently employed as the accounts payable/receivable administrator at the Phillip G. Ball Company, Clarks Summit.
Wendy enjoyed spending time with family at the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, MD. She was a great cook and had a way of making holiday gatherings extra special with creations from her kitchen. Like many members of her family, she was also an excellent bowler and enjoyed participating in leagues with her friends at South Side Bowl. Wendy was a beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, godmother and friend. Her passing created a void in many lives that will never be filled, but she will continue to live on in the hearts of all who knew and loved her.
Also surviving are her two beloved sons, Jonathan Morris and his companion, Paulina Victoria; and Jared Morris, both of West Scranton; brother, Don Bailey, and wife, Jocelyn, of Old Forge and their children, Catherine and Lincoln; aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents Margaret and James Decker, paternal grandparents Elizabeth and Earl Bailey, and special grandparents Olivia and Sydney Lewis.
