Mary Lou Batchelor Bailey, 84, died 8/16/23 at North MS Medical Center in Eupora, MS. Funeral Services were held 11:00 AM Saturday 8/19/23 at Oliver Funeral Home Chapel with burial in West Shady Grove Cemetery in Webster County, MS. Rev. Travis Gray, Rev. Hugh Bland and Rev. Willy Weddle officiated. Pallbearers were; Tommy Atkins, Mark Bailey, Frank Farley, Richard Bailey, Tom Bailey Jr. and Charlie Kelly. She was a member of West Shady Grove Baptist Church, and was a longtime dispatcher with the Eupora Police Department, an assistant with the Webster County Tax Assessor's office, and most importantly, a special loving mother and homemaker. Mrs. Mary Lou is survived by three daughters; Janet (Douglas) Hubbard, Lisa (Mike) Spears and Amy "Buffy" (Jimmy) Jackson all of Eupora, MS, seven grandchildren; Wendy (Stephen) Gwozdz, Robbie (Charlcy) Hubbard, Brian Hubbard, Bailey (Henderson) King, Cheyenne Stewart, Chris Jackson and Lauren Jackson, four great-grandchildren; Preston Hubbard, Anna Claire Hubbard, Daisy King and Thomas King. She was preceded in death by her parents; Olen and Mary Etta Jones Batchelor, her first husband and the "love of her life", PawPaw Ralph Bailey, her second husband; Danny Berry, two brothers; Olen Batchelor, Jr. and Jim Batchelor, and three sisters; Velma Scherio, Doris Kelly and Joan Shelby. Mother loved a good celebration. Her favorite was celebrating her family members' birthdays. She sent great cards with personal touches and loved being the first person early in the morning to sing a "Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday" song and would go on to provide several gifts and, until lately, a Sunday lunch and birthday cake for the birthday person. Her cards and "happys" always had a personal touch. She would pretend to have favorite children and grandchildren, mainly to have them do special favors for her, but we all knew what she was up to and that her love for us all was unconditional. She was "Aunt Loudie" to her precious nephews and nieces that she treated as her own, and a loyal, caring and great little sister to her siblings. Her biggest vice was a box of Twinkies. She loved baking and having pecan and sweet potato pies in the freezer for any occasion that came up and never turned down a dessert, especially if it came with a cup of coffee and a chat with all her good friends. Most importantly, mother taught her children and grandchildren how to pray and how important it was to take all your troubles to God and would often say "Prayer is the most important thing". Through her most difficult trials she leaned on the Lord and taught all of us to do that as well. Mary Lou will be remembered for her thoughtful gifts, her delicious sweets and most of all, her devotion to her family and her God
