Catherine H. Bailey

State interviewer

A Mass of Christian burial for Catherine Hamilton Bailey, a retired interviewer of job seekers in a state employment program, will be offered at 10 a.m. Monday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St.

Mrs. Bailey, who was 96 and lived in the Charles Village area for many years, died Tuesday of pneumonia at Union Memorial Hospital.

She was born Catherine Hamilton in Port Tobacco and educated at St. Anne's School in Baltimore and at what is now the Notre Dame Preparatory School.

She retired in 1960 after 20 years at what was then the Department of Employment Security.

Mrs. Bailey had been a member of the Sodality at SS. Philip and James Church and was active in the campaign that restored the Carmelite Monastery in Port Tobacco.

Her husband, Perry Ould Bailey, died in 1930.

She is survived by two sons, Perry Ould Bailey and J. E. Hamilton Bailey, both of Towson; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Jennifer L. Bond

Speech pathologist

A memorial service for Jennifer Levering Bond, a speech and language pathologist, will be held at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Home, 6500 York Road.

Ms. Bond, who was 38 and lived on Locust Circle in Arnold, died Thursday of cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Since 1989, she had been working at the Curtis Bay Elementary School with children who had speech problems.

For three years before that, she had been working for the Baltimore school system testing preschool children for speech problems.

She had done similar work from 1983 until 1986 as a research speech pathologist in a program studying the normal pattern of speech and language development in infants to make early detection of problems possible.

During that time, she was co-author of several professional papers.

She was also a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

Born in Baltimore, she graduated from Western High School and Towson State University and earned a master's degree with highest honors from Loyola College.

Before completing her education, she had worked in the law office of Allen, Thieblot and Alexander during the mid-1970s and in the management office of Harbor Place in the early 1980s.

She also had been interested in fencing and karate at the YWCA, earning a brown belt in the latter sport.

In 1984, she was married atop a Nantucket Island lighthouse to Stephen H. Ford, owner of Dimensional Productions, builders of architectural and other models, who survives her.

Other survivors include two sons, Jeremy P. and Nathan A. Ford, both of Arnold; her mother, Ann Morrow Bond of Baltimore; a sister, Polly M. Bond of Baltimore; and two brothers, Edwin L. Bond Jr. of Baltimore and Eugene L. Bond of Oklahoma City.
