Jan. 27, 1925 — Dec. 23, 2013

Self-proclaimed as “just a homemaker,” Billie was an educator, mentor, counselor, chef, money manager, seamstress, home decorator, gardener, crafter, chauffeur and especially a proud mother of five fine children. All her children and grandchildren know she was much more than “just a homemaker.”

Billie was born in Glendale, Calif., to William Gregory Burges and Blanche Mary Burges on Jan. 27, 1925. She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Margaret Hungerford (Fred); brother, George Burges (Lorene); husband of 53 years, Melvin “Pete” Dailey; and grandson, Eric M. Kvam. She is survived by her five children, Linda g. Lunceford (Alyn), John G. Dailey, Pamela J. Millars Dailey; Patrick W. Dailey (Jacqui) and Jean M. Kvam (Robert); 12 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

During her teen years Billie played on the Napa High School tennis team. she taught and played with all her children and tried to never miss a match on TV. After moving to Carson City upon Pete’s retirement she joined the Carson Tennis Club, where she played into her late 60s. Her last years were in Hayward and Placerville, while living near her children. She enjoyed all her friends at the Gold Country Retirement Center in Placerville.

A celebration of life is planned for the spring. Pete and Billie’s ashes may be scattered in the Sierras, a favorite recreational spot for the whole family.
