Eleanor Bailey Peterson

Eleanor Bailey Peterson passed away quietly in her home on Orcas Island on Saturday, January 21, 2017. She was surrounded by her family and carers.

Eleanor was almost 87 when she died. She was a professional vocalist and musician for most of her adult life. She moved to Orcas Island with her second husband, Ed Peterson, about 26 years ago. Mom was very happy here and loved all her friends very much.

We’ll be holding a memorial service for mom at Emmanuel Episcopal Church on Wednesday, February 15, at 2 p.m.. Eleanor leaves behind her remaining 2 adult children, Bill Bailey and Meg Bailey, along with dozens of friends and loved ones. Please join us to remember Mom next Wednesday. Everyone is welcome.
