 Patty Jo Bailey, 93, of Algonquin, passed away on Sunday, September 27, 2020 at Palos Heights Rehabilitation Center in Palos Heights. She was born on February 19, 1927 in Alton, Illinois, the daughter of Wayde F. Lee & Cleo Luzell Kershner Lee. Patty Jo loved pink wine, shrimp cocktail, and elegant manicures. She and her dear friend and life partner Gladys Carlson were avid dog lovers, and in their later years they doted on their Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Like many independent women of her era, Patty Jo held a variety of jobs, including a brief stint as a hand model in the 1950s. But she was most proud of her mid-life career shift to nursing, and her volunteer aid to the Algonquin - Lake in the Hills Emergency Ambulance Service as an Emergency Medical Technician.

She is survived by her chosen family, including Gladys’s daughters Sandra K. Lohrens and Verna R. Carlson, as well as their daughters and extended families.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, October 2, 2020 at 1:30 PM in the Wait Ross Allanson Funeral & Cremation Services Chapel, 201 S. Main St., Algonquin. Visitation will be held from 12:30 PM until the time of services in the chapel. In accordance with CDC guidelines regarding Covid-19, masks are required to enter the home and occupancy is limited.
