Baillie joined the Navy in 1951 as a 19-year-old kid out of Wyoming. She served more than 30 years, becoming the only woman aviation storekeeper promoted to senior chief and master chief. She retired from the Navy in 1982 and began working at the Trident Refit Facility — now Intermediate Maintenance Facility — in February 1983 as configuration and design coordinator. Baillie received her 60-year pin during a ceremony on Oct. 17 and retired again on Friday.
