    So sorry for the loss of dear Bailey. She was such an intelligent and delightful person, with a great sense of humor, a sometimes brutal honesty and a quick, dry wit. She appreciated her life and enjoyed the simple pleasures everyday. I will miss her, and especially will miss playing mahjong with her. Rest In Peace, Bailey.

    Thoughts of many years working as a volunteer at the AA when Bailey was the exemplar of a professional. When she laughed, it was so sincere and engaging. May she rest in peace and may her family find comfort in their memories of her. L.

    David and I are very saddened by Bailey ‘s unexpected death. She was a true lady and did with her heart whatever she undertook in this life. She always had a good word and a smile for whoever approached her.  Rest In Peace Bailey ,with all your loved ones that have preceded you! Amen.

    So many fond memories of Bailey. She was always the 'go to' person to find out what you needed to know for any project. Whether it was a roll of scotch tape, a phone #, or something significant, she always responded with a smile. She was such a fixture, I couldn't believe it when she told me she was retiring and I missed seeing her in that role. After her retirement it was always a pleasure to see her when she attended a synagogue event or in the community. She leaves a legacy of service and kindness which will be remembered by all who knew her.

    Bailey was my secretary for the 20 years I was the Senior Rabbi of Ahavath Achim Synagogue. She went about her work with quiet efficiency. Above all she understood the importance of confidentiality. She inevitably heard and observed much, but was consistently tight lipped. I respected her professionalism and admired her amazing work ethic. My condolence to all the family. May she rest in peace.

    Bailey was the "silent machine" that helped the AA office run smoothly and the Rabbis she served were so grateful for her competence. She did it all with a smile and cheerful voice. Her thoughtfulness and kindness will never be forgotten.

    Bailey Olim was among the most delightful, compassionate, generous, efficient and professional people I have ever known. For many years she was personal secretary to the venerable Rabbi Harry H Epstein, z’l, and devoted most of her life to the Ahavath Achim Synagogue which she loved more than life itself. She served the congregation with all of her heart and soul and greeted and treated everyone with whom she came into contact as if they were her best friend. Speaking from personal knowledge, it is beyond doubt that she made every synagogue president with whom she served more productive and successful, and in fact a better person. Even upon retirement, she attended many synagogue services and programs and supported the synagogue in every way possible. They simply do not make synagogue professionals like Bailey Olim anymore. May she rest in peace knowing that she positively affected the lives of the thousands who were honored and privileged to know and love her.

    I am in total shock. I was thinking of Bailey yesterday, thinking I needed to touch base with her. We worked together many years at the AA - she, a loyal asst to Rabbi Goodman among her many other responsibilities, and me asst to the Assoc. Rabbis. I will miss Bailey so much. Just can't believe this....
