Virginia L. Reece Bailey, 89, of New Castle, went to her heavenly home on Saturday August 14, 2021. She was born February 4, 1932 in Cadiz, Indiana, a daughter of Hobart and May (Shaw) Reece.
Virginia attended Cadiz High School. She was retired from Huntington Industry after 11 years when the plant closed. She belonged to The Rose City Breakers and was known as “Silver Lady”. She also belonged to the Red Hat Society and New Castle Tops. Virginia was an active member of Cross Road Church where she belonged to Women of Worth. She was known as “The Noodle Lady” due to the fact she made the best noodles and sold them to raise money to build onto the church. She found great joy in all her grandchildren and called them her babies. She loved to go camping with her family and taking charge at the family reunions. She loved to go shopping for clothes and always had her nails painted and red lipstick on. The last few years she spent living at Senior Living at Forest Ridge where she enjoyed going on outings, playing cards, and bingo. She was blessed to spend the last of her days with her only daughter by her side until she drew her last breath.
Virginia is survived by her daughter, Sheila McCubbins and her son-in-law Kenneth, whom she thought of as a son; her grandchildren, Jennifer Parks, Jamie Kilborn, and Kimberly McCubbins; her great-grandchildren, Haileigh McCubbins, Terra Parks, Zac Blevins, Macey and Alexis Christie, Ashlyn, Laycee, and Morgan Snodgrass; her great- great-grandchildren, Kylee Blevins, Alex Taylor, Kirk Wagner, Braxton Long, and Spencer Carey.
In addition to her parents, she is rejoicing in heaven with her husband, William T. Bailey, her son, Terry Lee Bailey, her sister, Betty Bolinger, and her brothers, Jack Reece, Robert Reece, and Richard Reece.
