Bailey, Lurie R., of Chesterfield, was just shy of her 87th birthday when she went to be with the Lord. She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, William “Bill” Clyde Bailey; parents, Andy and Arlenia Raines; two sisters, Marie Gwinn and Ollie Ratcliffe; and six brothers, Willie, Andy, John, Sherman, Otis and Narvell Raines. She is survived by her children, Doug Bailey (Katie), Teresa Radzom (Mark), and Judy Bailey; grandchildren, Jennifer Beckers (Andy), James Bailey, Steven Bailey (Melissa), Christina Bailey, and Joshua Wells; great-grandchildren, Adam and Isabelle; and her brother, Lonnie Raines. After graduating from Narrows High School, she moved to Richmond. While working at Standard Drug, her future would be changed forever when a man named Bill Bailey ordered a cup of hot chocolate. She worked and later retired from Verizon after more than 30 years. Bill and Lurie enjoyed their retirement traveling, spending time with family, and hosting large taco parties for all to enjoy. The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 1, at Morrissett Funeral & Cremation Service, 6500 Iron Bridge Road (Rte 10). Her funeral will be held at the same location on Friday, March 2, at 10:30 a.m., followed by interment at Dale Memorial Park.
