Delores Sheila Bailey-Price was born on September 5, 1958, in Neptune, N.J. to the late Cammie Lee Robinson and Prentice Bailey Sr. Delores also spent time expressing and receiving daughterly love and affection from the late Jethro Hall Sr. Delores was called home on Saturday, May 27, 2023.
Delores was educated in the Asbury Park Public School System. Lori or Dee-Dee as she was sometimes referred to profoundly shared that she attended police academy training in Atlanta, Georgia. Shortly afterward her first daughter, DaVisha, was born. Delores took a leap of faith and ventured across the country to San Diego, California. While in California her second born daughter, ShaLyce, was born. Lori resided in San Diego for over 10 years. In 1989 Delores moved back to her hometown of Asbury Park, N.J. Lori had a very strong bond and trust in the LORD and read her bible often. Delores enhanced her education with training courses in the health field including phlebotomy and CNA. She primarily worked as a caretaker in the Asbury Park and San Diego communities. Lori also worked as a crossing guard in Asbury Park and Red Bank ensuring student safety. While Lori was proud of her daughters her greatest accomplishments were those of her four grandsons. Lori is well known for having her grandsons, Rashaad, Aaron, Darius and YiZir with her or sharing stories and expressing joy about their milestones. She spent years pouring her unwavering love and guidance into the upbringing of her nieces and nephew as well. Lori spent the last few years supporting the growth, development, and childrearing of her youngest grandson, YiZir.
Lori had a great sense of humor, enjoyed a good laugh, and had an amazingly beautiful smile. She could uplift even the most saddened person by helping them see the brighter side of things. She was also known for being “slick with her tongue” at times but everyone knew her heart was pure, and she meant everyone well. Delores, Dee-Dee, had an abundance of love for her family, she loved music, dancing, celebrating events, and traveling.
Left to cherish her precious memories are her loving daughters, DaVisha Bailey-Pratt (husband Louis Pratt Sr,), Shalyce M. Davis; grandsons Rashaad, Aaron, Darius, YiZir; her siblings Pamela, Sandy, Prentice (Cindy), Monica (Lanell), Erica, Johnsie (William), Areatha, and Michelle. Delores additionally very much cherished her relationships with sibling loved ones Lavaughn, Warren, Sam, and Jethro Jr. whom she spent much time with both in Asbury Park and San Diego. Also left to cherish her memories are a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.
