Bailey passed away on December 2, 2011, along with her friend, Nicholas Sawyer, following a tragic automobile accident. Because she deeply cared for her sister and brothers, Bailey personified the term loving sister. She is most remembered as everyone's friend, known for her gentle, kind spirit. No ill thought crossed Bailey's mind according to one of her teachers at Austin High School. Her teachers also knew of her love and concern for her family. Bailey was not only known for her kindness, but also her exceptional work ethic in the classroom, on the soccer field and in band activities. Her life not only focused on school activities, but she also strived to impact others with God's love. She was involved with work camps to aid those who could not do the work themselves. She participated in the Houston Inner City Mission Trip last summer in an effort to bring God's love to those who may not know Him. She was gifted in her ability to work with younger children.
She is survived by her loving parents, Alan and Debra Robinson, her sister, Elise, and her brothers, Carter and Drew. She is also survived by her grandparents, Ray and Pat Robinson of Decatur and Don and JoAnn Pate of Montgomery. Surviving aunts and uncles include Kenneth and Donna Hammonds of Decatur, Tony and Lisa Giarratana of Nashville, Tenn., Alan and Donna Pate of Atlanta, Ga., Scott and Karen Brunner of Richmond, Va.
Pallbearers will be Clay Sloan, Nain Lopez, Weston Parker, Nick Boyle, Bill Cook, Chet Humphries, Steve Harris and Mark Waters.
Flower alternative includes the Auburn Christian Foundation.
