Margaret Bailey Goodman, 80, as of May 20, 2012 is “absent from her body and is present with the Lord.” She will be dearly missed.

She was a member of Sulphur Springs Baptist Church, where she loved singing in the choir.

Yard work and spoiling her three “grand-dogs” were some of her favorite pastimes.

Margaret was preceded in death by her husband, E.K. Goodman; her parents, Joe and Alice Bailey; two brothers, Vernon Bailey and Jake Pierce.

She is survived by three sisters; Irene Chambers, Letha Magness (R.J.), Clara Henderson (Gary); six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren and three children; Paulette, Jackie and Micheal, who’s lives she enriched even in the most adverse times. The holidays and birthdays were made so special by this loving mother who’s beautiful alto voice is now harmonizing with the angels in praise to God.

The family will hold a Memorial Service 10:00 a.m. Monday, May 28, at Sulphur Springs Baptist Church with Bro. Robert Bass and Bro. Billy West officiating.

The Family will be at her home.
