Della Baylor Obituary

At her request, no public services will be held for Della May Baylor, 97, of Coos Bay. A private family celebration will be held at a later time.

Della was born November 28, 1926 in Montague, California to George Edward and Elsie May (Fairchild) Nichols. She passed away February 16, 2024 in Coos Bay, surrounded by family.

Della was raised in Allegany and shared fond memories of riding the boat back and forth to Coos River school.

On February 13, 1946 while Della’s high school sweetheart, Pete was on a leave before being deployed to the Navy, the couple married in Glendale, California. They were married for 70 years.

One of Della’s favorite pastimes was going to “the office”; where she had many good times.

Throughout her lifetime, Della was privileged to participate in two, five-generation pictures. Something she was very proud of.

Della will be dearly missed by her loving family, friends and all those who had the pleasure of knowing her.

She is survived by her son, Mike and Alice Baylor; daughter, Sherry and Woody Brown; sister, Roberta Hayne; grandchildren, Denise (Steve) Siewell, Dina (Tyrone) Hansen, Janeen (Terry) Walling, numerous great-grandchildren and great great-grandchildren.
