She was one of seven children. When she was just six weeks old, her family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. She attended Wellesley College, Oahu College, College of Hawaii (now the University of Hawaii) , the Boston Music Conservatory, and received a lifetime teaching diploma from the Honolulu Normal School. Her father was an attorney when the family moved to Hawaii and became citizens. He became the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Acting President for the Republic of Hawaii and was later the first Secretary of the Territory of Hawaii. At her father's death, Ms. Bailey inherited one-sixth of two islands. Mr. Cooper had once owned 52 coral atolls throughout the South Pacific. She later donated all of her Hawaiian possessions to the Iolani Palace, where her father had worked, when the building was declared an historical landmark."
