In Loving Memory

Bailey, Maxine (nee Zoll), 

Age 90, of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away May 5, 2024. Maxine was born on July 28, 1933, to the late Vincent and Anna (nee Basler) Zoll in Ste. Genevieve, MO. After Maxine graduated from Valle High school in 1951, she went on to become an X-ray technician at St. John’s Hospital. It was at X-ray school that Maxine met Thomas Bailey, her husband of 59 years. They went on to have four children.

Maxine was preceded in death by her sister Lorraine Uding (Frank, dec.); sons Vincent Bailey and Neal Bailey. She is survived by her husband Thomas, her two daughters Amy Bach and Wendy Atwood (Kevin), her 11 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.

Maxine valued her faith, friendships, and family above all. Her devotion to Mary was the source of her strength and focus for every decision she made throughout her life. She was active in her parish’s Pro-Life Club, and upheld Catholic and family traditions in her faith life and at home. She never forgot a birthday or to send a handwritten note to let you know she cared. In high school she was her volleyball team captain and cheer captain, as well as being chosen as May Queen and graduating as valedictorian. She was proud to be from Ste. Genevieve and to have graduated from Valle Catholic. Her generosity and spiritual values were an example for all who knew her.

Services; A visitation will be held at Mary, Mother of the Church, on Saturday, May 11, at 10 am, with Mass immediately following at 11 am. Interment Valle Spring Cemetery (Ste Genevieve, MO) at 2PM on Sat. May 11th. Arrangements provided by Kutis South County.

  1. Aunt Maxine was my God Mother. Although not actually related, she was my mother’s best friend throughout her life and had the well-earned the title of aunt. She was so inspiring in her faith, gentleness, and kindness. She sent me cards for every birthday and holiday as well as remembering me on my parents’ feast days. I am happy that she is now in heaven in union with Jesus and her sons, Neal and Vincent. I love you Aunt Maxine and ask you continue to pray for all of us as you did all your life.

  2. With heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mother. May the love, prayers and support of your family and friends bring you comfort during this most difficult time. – Love,
    Robert and Tammy Roth

  3. I always had a special place in my heart for Maxine, she was very kind and supportive to me. I forever will remember her cowbell at my childhood games and her joyful spirit. I visited her a few years ago and she encouraged me to “get the gang together and kick the ball around” Maxine also shared her memory of living in St Genevieve when the war ended. She said people sang, waved flags and banged pots and pans in the street.

    It’s fair to say that her kindness has left an imprint on my heart. Much love to Maxine’s family.

  4. So sorry to hear about the passing of your mother! I hope that Prayers and the support for you and your family will comfort you in this Difficult time. Mother’s hold a special place for us that can never be forgotten. May God give you and your family peace and comfort !
    Love always,
    Ken and Barb Hubbman
