Donna Beth Bailey

July 20, 1947 - June 5, 2014 <-

Donna Wells Bailey left family and friends on June 5, 2014 with the Lord’s arm wrapped around her in comfort and peace. Born in Okmulgee, Oklahoma on July 20, 1947 to Chauncey Douglas and Frances W. Wells, she came to Texas as soon as she could get here! Funeral services will be held Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at New Shores Baptist Church in Sweeny at 10:00 am. Visitation will be Monday, June 9, 2014 from 6 to 8 pm at Baker Funeral Home in West Columbia. She is preceded in death by father, Chauncey Douglas Wells; mother, Frances Wayna Wells Reddoch; and sisters, Karen Sue Powers and Betty Elaine Buck. She is survived by husband, Rafel Bailey Jr.; children, Douglas Bailey and wife, Kalen,; Darren Bailey and wife, Christina; and Hollie Nail and husband, Stuart; grandchildren, Brook Bailey; Blaine Bailey; Brenna Bailey; Nicholas Nail; Garrett Nail; Ella Bailey; Easton Bailey; and Luke Nail, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and all her friends who have made this rough journey easier to bear through all of their countless thoughts and prayers. Donna was a 1965 graduate of Sweeny High School and 1967 graduate of W.C.J.C. On August 11, 1967 she married Ray Bailey and moved to Houston where she worked for Southwestern Bell Telephone, Ramada Inn, and Woolco while Ray completed his degree in Education at the University of Houston. When they moved back to Sweeny in 1970, she retired to be a housewife and raise her children. Wanting to serve her community, she opened a craft shop on Main Street and began her legacy of meeting people and volunteering her services to improve and give back to her community. She was a founding member of the Garden Club, Beautification Committee, and Pride Day. She served as executive secretary of the Chamber of Commerce for several years and was instrumental in the establishment of the school P.T.A., as well as the Gazebo Park downtown. She was active in the Civic Club and the Library Board. She was a life member of the Ladies Auxiliary at Post 8551. She served the citizens of Sweeny in a city council position for ten years. And she did all of this while raising her three children. She never met a stranger; she loved her family, community, and all her friends. We will all miss her presence in our daily lives but will never forget the joy she gave us. In lieu of flowers, please give to your favorite Charity or Sweeny Beautification. Thank you from our hearts…the Bailey Family.
