She is survived by her sister Betty (Simeon) Abdon of Summerville, and half-sister Beverly Driggers of Goose Creek.

She leaves behind her loving husband, Al, son Marty Bailey, and daughter Kim (David) O’Dell.  Her legacy will continue through her adoring grandchildren: Rebekah O’Dell, Blaise Bailey, Ryan O’Dell, Alex Bailey, and Lauren Fanning; and great-grandson, Asher Yeager. She will also be remembered by her countless nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
