Martha G. Bailey
Martha Ellen Graham Bailey, age100, widow of Roy H. Bailey, Jr., passed away Thursday, April 14, 2022, at the Cottingham Hospice House in Seneca.
Born in Orrum, NC, Martha was the daughter of the late James Aubrey and Mattie Bullock Graham. Shortly after earning an Associate Degree from Mars Hill College, she went to work in the Pentagon in Washington, DC, two weeks before Pearl Harbor. Many fascinating stories are associated with that time. In 1963 she moved to Clemson and worked as the transcript clerk in the Registrar's Office at Clemson University, retiring after 23 years of service. She was a member and former elder of Fort Hill Presbyterian Church and was a former Clemson Downs Volunteer.
Surviving is her son, Roy H. "Chip" Bailey, III of Clemson; daughters, Susan B. Chandler of Six Mile, SC and JoAnn Bailey of Greenville, SC; grandchildren, Josh Chandler, Josie Chandler, Jonathan Chandler and Sara Chandler; a great granddaughter, Bailey Chandler; a sister, Nell G. Skinner Lyon of Lumberton, NC; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband and parents, Martha was predeceased by a brother, James A. Graham, and a sister, Ann G. Smith.
Memorial services will be held at 11:00 AM, on Saturday, April 23rd at Fort Hill Presbyterian Church, 101 Edgewood Ave., Clemson.
