The personal ad, if there was one, would have read “retired, widowed doctor/avid sailor seeks partner for adventure and romance.” We have to say there wasn’t a dry eye in the BHB house when we read this wedding announcement in the NY Times today.
New York Times: Ann Cary Bailey and Dr. Leon William Hoyer were married yesterday afternoon at Grace Church Brooklyn Heights. The Rev. Stephen D. Muncie, an Episcopal priest, performed the ceremony.
Ms. Bailey, 67 , is keeping her surname. Before retirement, she worked in a number of human resources jobs in New York, including at Lebenthal & Company, the bond brokers; Abraham & Straus, the former department store chain; and for the Legal Aid Society. She was also a personal editorial assistant to Diana Trilling, the cultural and social critic.
