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.

    Lori (my LoLo) we shared a special bond for over 40+ years. We transcended good and hard times together as friends. We laughed, cried and prayed many of those days. I will forever treasure those special times we spent on our knees before the Lord in prayer. Her faith was very strong and I’m comforted in knowing that she is with the Lord!! Her jokes, laughter and realness is something I truly loved and appreciated about her. I am continually in awe at how she handled her illness. She never complained, always had a positive attitude and definitely fought hard to be strong for everyone she loved. She often said to me “Dee, I’m not giving up, I’m a Child of the Most High God!! It ain’t over until He says so” Lo Lo, you fought a good fight, now you don’t have to fight anymore. Take your rest in the arms of
    our Heavenly Father!! I’ll see you in the morning!! My prayers and condolences go out to Devisha, ShaLyice and Family. May God give you comfort, peace and strength in the days to come!! Much love to you all!! Be Blessed!!

    RIP Lori one thing is for sure you sure had a slick tongue but oh so sweet and a smile that lit up a room, gonna miss you cursing me out when I jokingly called you Pam every time I saw you. Thank you for always treating me like family. Give Ms. Cammie a kiss for me. May your soul rest in peace however to be absent from the body means to be present with the Lord. Take your wings and fly Lori, love you and you will truly be missed.
