BAILEN, Ann (Karol) - Of Peabody, passed away on October 15, 2020.
Beloved wife of Dr. Jacob (“Jack”) Bailen. Daughter of the late Irving
and Bertha Leimberg Karol. Mother of Dr. Laura and Howard Kaufman, Dr.
Mark Bailen and Dr. Monica Roizner, Dr. Steven and Cindy Bailen,
Richard and Michelle Bailen, and Michael Bailen. Grandmother of Merav
Kaufman, Yael Kaufman and Aviva Galpert, Yonina and Manor Ben-Shimon,
Avital Bailen, Erez Bailen, Gilat Bailen, Kara Bailen, Jenna Bailen,
Justin Bailen, and Alex Bailen. Sister to Jean (Martin) Becker of
Albany, NY and Miriam Efroymson of Albuquerque, NM.

Ann was born in Boston, MA on July 30, 1935. Raised in Springfield,
MA, Ann attended the Boston University School of Practical Arts and
Letters. She married her beloved husband, Dr. Jack Bailen, in 1956,
and in 1958, the couple moved to Peabody, MA, where they raised five
children and ran two consecutive businesses (an optometry practice and
dental practice) from their home. Ann was the office manager for both
businesses, and her contributions were invaluable.

Ann loved traveling to warmer climates, reading the newspaper
front-to-back, talking to friends and family, dining out, solving
crossword puzzles, and playing the lottery. Her children and
grandchildren meant everything to her, and she delighted in
celebrating their accomplishments and simchas. Her sharp wit, facility
with language, and astute engagement with current events brought joy
to all in her company.

Ann’s life and memory are a blessing to all of us. Donations in
remembrance may be made to Congregation Shirat Hayam, 55 Atlantic Ave,
Swampscott, MA 01907.
