BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The University of Alabama says Jan Tillery-Bailey, wife of former UA President Dr. Guy Bailey, died Sunday at Trinity Hospital in Birmingham.
“The University of Alabama is deeply saddened over the passing of Dr. Jan Tillery-Bailey and wishes to extended our heartfelt sympathies to Guy and their entire family,” said UA President Dr. Judy Bonner. “Everyone who got to know Jan was inspired by her courage, her spirit and her determination. The thoughts and prayers of the entire UA family are with the Baileys during this sad time.”
Dr. Bailey stepped down as president in October 2012, soon after taking the job a few months earlier, to focus on his wife’s health.
