Statement from Aquinas College President Kevin Quinn on death of Deb Bailey, friend supporter and community champion

Published on

Aquinas College President Kevin G. Quinn issued the following statement on the death Monday of Deb Bailey, two-time member of the Board of Trustees and former member of the Alumni Board:

“On behalf of the entire Aquinas College community, I am deeply saddened to learn of the death of Deb Bailey, former trustee, alumna, volunteer, co-worker and dear friend. I had the chance to speak with her recently as she helped lead our Contributing to More campaign efforts and as the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Aquinas College honored her with the 2020 Norbert J. Hruby Emeritus Award. Deb was a true force of nature, and with her support you felt like you could move mountains. Her loss is profound. We mourn with the Aquinas community and the West Michigan community that she cared for so deeply. We will continue in her spirit to serve one another and our communities with courage.”
