Henrietta Bailey

Mrs. Henrietta Bailey, age 102-years old, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, October 9th, 2020. Henrietta was born in Palestine, Texas on August 6th, 1918 to Makum Buck and Annie Carnella Davis Reed. She was united in holy matrimony to Luther Bailey in 1943. She was also blessed with 6 children, 17 grandchildren, 41 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren.

Henrietta confessed her belief in Christ at an early age. She was active in church and ultimately became the matriarch member of St. John Baptist Church. During her long and productive lifetime as a loving mother and wife, she demonstrated in countless ways her dedication to the welfare of others and has earned the respect and affection of so many people from all walks of life. In her quiet way, she graced the lives of those who crossed her path with inspirational words of wisdom and unwavering encouragement. Although she will be missed, we will rejoice and celebrate the life and homecoming of our beloved Henrietta Bailey.

Visitation will be held on Friday, October 16th from 10:00 am - 11:00 am at St. John Baptist Church, 5445 Greenwood Dr., Corpus Christi, TX. 78417. Funeral services for family will begin immediately thereafter at 11am. We encourage our friends to view the services virtually at www.stjohnbc.org

I would like to extend my condolences to the Bailey family. I was very close to the family for 15 years. Mrs. Bailey was always kind and made me feel like I was one of her own. She had a sweet smile and would make me laugh when she squirmed with that cute giggle she had. I’ll never forget the times we spent in her kitchen; me learning how to cook greens or washing dishes for her. I am saddened by her passing and know she has earned her Angelic wings. Thanks for the Memories Mrs. Bailey - May you Rest In Peace.

Grandma thank you for always making me smile and the laughs we shared. When things were challenging you always knew the right thing to say to give me the strength to keep pushing forward. I will honor your strength and heart by never giving up. My heart is warm knowing you are now at peace and finally home. Love you always! - Lisa L. Wilson

Mrs Bailey was a wonderful woman. I enjoyed as a kid growing up in Molina. My aunt lived right next door to the Bailey family. Mrs Bailey will be truly missed in her neighborhood and at her Church. Rest with the lord until we meet again. John Hosey Sr

Mrs Henrietta was like another mother to the Glynn sisters. She always kept up with us, where are you? what you doing? Why are you putting on weight? That’s why we had to make visits to her so she could see for herself. When growing up she always had a garden that she shared with my family. That was work for us. We will miss seeing her when we come back to our home in Corpus Christi. Love ALWAYS to our second family. Marylin Glynn Tate, Esther Glynn Hill, and Alnetia Glynn Odoms.
