In Memory


(Tom Safran, Gale Bailey, Pandy Berkson - from 2018.)

Dear Classmates,

Classmate Carol Klein Borden sent me this note below regarding our friend and classmate, Gale Bailey,
who passed away early this morning.  Thank you, Carol.
Gale Bailey passed away from cancer on January 1, 2019 in Santa Fe, NM.  She is survived by her
two sons, Andrew Falk and Jeremy Falk, and a daughter Jennifer Falk.

Gale and I grew up together in Glencoe, and were good friends all through grammar school, New Trier, as well as in adult life!  So many stories, too little time!  She was an excellent tennis player and while at New Trier, she even loved playing with my late husband Lee Borden, who was in our class and on the tennis team at NT - he passed away in 1985.

Gale always had laughter, love and a zest for life. She didn't let anything stop her from experiencing anything she desired.  Living in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Miguel de Allende for a year.  She spent time in Panama, then back to LA and Chicago, LA once more and finally to Santa Fe, her final resting place. 
Gale loved art, yoga, and had a wonderful eye for fashion.  She had numerous friends from all over the map and didn't let her illness get in the way of life.  She will be missed by me and so many others.

I am so sorry to hear of Gales passing. She fought a valiant battle against cancer and did very well. We were besties in 6th grade in Glencoe then drifted apart until NT reunions. She visited us in Ecuador and we really bonded when she was back in Chicago and we were both undergoing cancer treatments. I will miss my friend along the path.
