Obituary for Frances Darlene Bailey

Frances Darlene Bailey
Frances Darlene Bailey, 66, of Hollister, became absent from the body and in the presence of the Lord on Sunday, December 24, 2017 at home surrounded by her loving family. A native of St. Augustine, Darlene was a 1969 graduate of Paxon High School in Jacksonville and resided in Putnam County since 1981 coming from Jacksonville. Darlene was a licensed practical nurse for 36 years, having worked at Memorial Hospital and Jacksonville General Hospital, Putnam Community Medical Center, with Dr. Craig Raby, Family Medical, Upjohn as well as Palatka Health Care Center and several other home health providers in the area. She was an active member of First Assembly of God in Palatka. She was a Sunday school teacher and choir member at various other church families throughout her life. She had also been a member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. Darlene was very family oriented and loved spending time with her children and grandchildren and especially around Christmas, her favorite time of the year. She also loved her Dachshunds. Darlene was very intelligent and enjoyed puzzles and things that challenged her mind. She will always be remembered as “generous to a fault “and how her home was always open to anyone needing assistance or encouragement in difficult times.
She was preceded in death by her parents, George Highsmith and Vonda Vincent and a brother, Cody Highsmith.
Darlene is survived by her husband of 46 years, Alexander P. “A.P.” Bailey of Hollister, 3 daughters, Desiree “Cherie” Evans (Leland) of Hollister, Alexandria F.

Memorial services celebrating Darlene’s life will be at 11:00 A. M. Wednesday, January 3, 2018 at First Assembly of God in Palatka with Pastor Ted Stackpole officiating.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be sent to Haven Hospice Roberts Care Center, 6400 St. Johns Ave., Palatka, FL 32177.
