Betty Bailey, bron on April 24, 1964, in Memphis, Tennessee to Mildred House. Insipred by a desire to live her live fully, she later moved to Chicago, Illinois. Betty accepted Christ and was baptized at a young age. Betty was loving, joyful, big-hearted person and she gave everyone a chance no matter what the circumastances were. Betty was a happy soul, a true queen who knew her worth and value in this world. She lived her life to the fullest and made it easy to love her. 

On September 28, 2023, Betty took a gentle step from this earthly abode to an eternal dawn. She was received by her beloved mother Mildred, her cherished daughters Mildred Bailey and Nyesha Brown, and her brothers Clyde Ricks, Henry Bailey, and Lorenzo Ricks, and her sister Shirley Ricks.

Left to honor and celebrate her memory are her daughters: Annette Sanders, Lanette Sanders, Kristine Rigby, Rosie Norman, and sons: Jerry Lee Rigby, Bobby Norman III, each a chapter of her life's story penned with love and grace. Her sisters Rose Tolliver, Diane Ricks, Gladys Ricks, and Kristine Ricks, and brothers Willie Lee Johnson and Emmanuel Ricks are keepers of the memories of a sister whose light filled their lives. In the hearts of her 24 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends, Betty lives on, a melody of a beautiful moments, an enduring legacy. 

Betty's legacy is not one of sainthood, but of humanity, marked by both its radiant dawns and echoing dusks. She was a testament to the profound beauty and undeniable imperfections that define the human journey. In the tapestry of her existence, each thread-bold and subdued, radiant, and somber-contributes to the unapologetic narrative of a life authentically lived.
