Lynette Maud Bailey was born in Cedar Valley, St. Ann, Jamaica on July 28, 1928 to the
union of Alfred and Isolena Campbell. She was the youngest of six children. In the beginning of
her vocational life, she was an early childhood educator. She displayed her excellence in
molding young lives and guiding them in creating good educational habits. After moving to
Kingston, she worked as a cashier and later at the the Jamaica Omnibus Service where she
had a tenure spanning two decades. Lynette married Detective Sergeant Winston Uriah Bailey
in December 1981 after a few years of courtship. She was widowed in 1986.
Lynette first migrated to New York from Jamaica in the 1970s and would go on to
assume dual citizenship. She was very hard-working and resourceful and quickly joined the
U.S. workforce to prepare the way for her children to move to the States. She worked various
jobs including cashier and banking, and later, she had further vocational training in computers
and data entry. This afforded her the opportunity to work at M.C. Cannon, which she did for
several years before she retired and relocated to Orlando, Florida. Lynette enjoyed travelling,
and travelled frequently between the United States and Jamaica until just a few years ago when
she was no longer strong enough to travel.
Lynette was a follower and disciple of Jesus Christ and enjoyed reading the Bible; attending
church and small group Bible Studies; fellowshipping with her church family; and prayer. She
loved life and enjoyed family, particularly, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and
great-great-grandchildren.
When Lynette left this life of pain for her home in heaven, she left behind to treasure her
memory, two sons: Wentworth (Wenty) and Erroll; three daughters: Dorrette, Beverley and
Jeanette, fourteen grandchildren, twenty-six great grandchildren and five great-great
grandchildren. She will also be considerably missed by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, her
church family and brothers and sisters in Christ near and far.
