Nee Bailey, age 88, a long-term resident of Pewaukee and devoted wife of the late Fred Moritz, passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020. Born on November 8, 1931, Barbara was employed for more than 25 years by Sentry Foods, and was proud to be a Union representative. Barbara was a longtime and active member within the Galilee Lutheran Church community. She is survived by her daughter Debra (Stephen) Brotz, son Robert (Gretchen Mattner), grandchildren Matt, Laura, and Anna, Brother in-law Alan Decker, Sister in-law Janet Millard, nieces and nephews. Barbara was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years Fred, her parents Ray and Nellie Bailey, sister Shirley and brother-in-law Chester Wegner, sister Cheri Decker, and her nephew Scott Wegner.
The family is grateful to Barbara’s long-term caring neighbors who always provided assistance in any and every way they could; Lawn mowing, snow removal, meals, thoughtfulness of inclusion and just keeping an eye out to spontaneously help as needed – along with her longtime friends who always called and checked in on her. The family is grateful to Herb and Peggy, Will and Pam, Mousy and Gary, Caroline, and Ted.
The family would also like to appreciate and acknowledge Barbara’s transplant care physician Dr. Franco, of Froedert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, and to primary care provider Dr. Martin Kern (retired) for their gifted skills, caring, and compassionate interest in Barbara’s lifetime wellbeing.
