Prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Lillie Bailey
I've known Mrs. Bailey for years per us being members of First Baptist Church in Gary, IN. She was a good person to know as she had a very outgoing personality and always smiling. During my years working at Majestic Star Casino, she would always joke with me about if I started getting that big money yet.
She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
