Beat Five was Bailey’s priority

Services for Wayne Martin Bailey, 76, of Dundee were held at 2 p.m. on December 23, 2012 at Berea Baptist Church, with burial in Oakwood Cemetery.  Bud Shipley and Felton Mason officiated at the services.
Bailey, a retired farmer, passed away Friday, December 21, 2012. He was a lifelong resident of Tunica County.
He was elected to the Tunica County Board of Supervisors in 1980. He served four full terms and a partial term as the representative for District 5. He was selected vice president of the Board of Supervisors in 1988, serving two terms in that capacity.
District One Supervisor James Dunn, who served with Bailey from 1984 through the mid 90s, remembered his colleague as someone “who was easy to work with.”
