Delores “Dee” Cordia (Hubble) Bailey was born on August 20th, 1938 in Beless, New Mexico to Bailey Hubble and Lora Lavern Wright.
She did not live in New Mexico for long, her family moved to Manitou Springs, Colorado when Dee was a young girl. It was here that she spent her childhood and graduated from Manitou Springs High School. Dee would eventually move to Fredericksburg, VA with her husband and first daughter and completed her family with 3 additional children. Working around the clock to put her husband through school while raising her children. In 1966, NASA engineering department moved them across the country to Seabrook, TX, where they would settle permanently. Dee’s social function was hosting Apollo splashdown parties at our local “Ed White Elementary” and neighborhood bridge parties. Dee was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church in LaPort, TX. She went on to do many things, including becoming the director of a winning little league football drill team “Comets”, which her children were delightfully apart of. She also was a champion bowler and travelled across the country to many different tournaments, bringing home multiple trophies. She was extremely crafty, honing her skills in crocheting, ceramics, and decoupage; she even made money trees for members of her family. In the 1980’s came to own her own office supply store providing many items for the members of her community and NASA with the necessary stationary and equipment that allowed the astronauts to go into space with their favorite writing instruments “Space Pens”. She was a jokester, as well, playing numerous practical jokes on family members and friends. Dee loved to gamble, often being found playing slots with her sister.
