often. She was a founder and dedicated member of the Cyclone Church of God for 49 years. She began her
ministry work in 1973 and became an ordained minister in 1976. She was blessed with a large and loving
family. In addition to her parents she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 52 years Earsel Bailey;
a son Ricky Bailey; a grandson Larry Dale Fields, Jr.; two brothers Emory Lusk and James Lusk; two sisters
