Tressie Thelma Bai­ley

Tressie Thelma Bai­ley, 85, died Jan. 18,

2018, in Ben­tonville. She was born on

July 11, 1932, where she grew up as the youngest of five chil­dren on her par­ent’s cot­ton farm in Bar­ney, Ark., to Bar­ney Porter Beene and Myr­tle Ma­ga­line Hill Beene.

At age 18, she mar­ried her love Rex and there be­gan her life’s pur­pose of be­ing a coach’s wife and a mother to her three boys. She could be found spend­ing the ma­jor­ity of her time be­tween four dif­fer­ent places: In the gym where she was the loud­est, most opin­ion­ated one in the stands; in the kitchen — break­fast, lunch and din­ner, all from scratch ev­ery day with recipes that still live on today!; in the Beauty Shop — whether it was for her­self, her clients or her grand­daugh­ters, look­ing good was a top pri­or­ity!; and in the church. She never missed a Sun­day morn­ing ser­vice. And nei­ther did any­one else if they knew what was good for them! Tressie lived a life and left a legacy of a true ma­tri­arch. Her roles as a wife, a mother and a grand­mother were sec­ond to none. Her un­con­di­tional love, her time­less beauty, and her sassy spirit will live on in all of those who she touched.

Sur­vivors are three sons, Keith Bai­ley (Rose) of Ida, Ark., Tommy Bai­ley (Peggy) of Cros­by­ton, Texas, and Eric Bai­ley (Kristy) of Ben­tonville, Ark; nine grand­chil­dren; and nine great-grand­chil­dren.

A cel­e­bra­tion of life is sched­uled for 2 p.m. Satur­day, Feb. 10, in Flag­stone Church of Christ in Ben­tonville.
