In memory of a wonderful volunteer and supporter of the Partnership Cancer Fund - Joan Bailey. 

AHLEIDA JOAN SEEVER BAILEY VALDOSTA, Ga. -- Ahleida Joan Seever Bailey, 74, of Valdosta, died on May 9, 2014 at her home, following a valiant fight with Parkinson's Disease and cancer. Born March 2, 1940 in Richmond, VA to Harold and Ahleida Seever and raised in Florence, SC and Mobile, AL, Joanie was a true child of the South. After graduating from Murphy High School in Mobile and receiving two degrees from Samford University in Birmingham, AL, she married then-Samford professor Dr. Hugh C. Bailey. The couple then embarked on a grand adventure and Joan served as her husband's chief helpmeet during his career as Academic Vice President at Francis Marion College in Florence, SC and then as President of Valdosta State University in Valdosta, GA. During her 23 years as First Lady of Valdosta State, she was "mom" to more than 32,000 graduates and her community service was wide-reaching. Joan Bailey was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 50 years, Hugh Coleman Bailey. She is survived by her two daughters and their families, Debra Jane, and son-in-law Mark Helwig, and children Clare (11) and Bailey (5) all of Athens, GA; and Laura Joan, and son-in-law Thomas Singletary, and grandchildren Alex (16) and Avery (6), all of Tallahassee, FL. A Memorial Service for Mrs. Bailey will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 at Christ Episcopal Church in Valdosta, GA. The family will receive friends from 6 until 8 p.m. on Monday, May 12, 2012, at Carson McLane Funeral Home. The family asks that donations in lieu of flowers be made to the Hugh C. Bailey Scholarship Fund at the Valdosta State University Foundation, 1500 N. Patterson St. Valdosta, GA 31698, The Partnership for Cancer Fund, 203 Woodrow Wilson Dr., Valdosta, GA 31602 or The Community Depot, 1602 North Ashley Street, Valdosta, GA.
