Visitation at Funeral Home
Obituary of Becka Lee Bailey
Becka Lee "Deena" Bailey, age 25, of Tunica, Mississippi, passed away unexpectedly Monday, September 30, 2019, at her family's home.
A graduate of Tunica Academy's Class of 2014, Becka was a vibrant member of the Tunica County community and her sudden death has left family and friends alike reeling in shock and grief. Although not perfect by any means, Becka was indeed perfectly loved by all who knew her. She loved all things simple in life and had an uncanny way of finding and appreciating the real beauty in the world around her. With a sense of humor like no other, Becka never met a stranger and greeted each day and person she encountered along the way with her signature beautiful smile and engulfing hugs. She loved all animals and children, but her passions in life were the arts, including music, literature, and artwork. Becka embraced life to the fullest and her smile and hugs were infectious, changing all who knew her for the better from their encounters.
Becka is survived by her mother, Janet Bailey Griggs, and fathers, William Warren Griggs and Roger Dale Goff, Sr., all of Tunica; siblings Ross Manning Belk (Ellen) of Philadelphia, MS, Rheda Ann Goff Campbell of Kosciusko, MS, and Roger Dale "Bo" Goff, Jr. of Crenshaw, MS; her Aunt Lee Bailey Rider (Jimmy) of Tunica; her Uncle Jeff Bailey (Lori) of Tunica; her Aunt Mary Jo Griggs Red (Jerry) of Batesville, MS, and her Uncle Ray (Mary Ann) Griggs of Tunica; her other aunts and uncles include Joe (Linda) Goff of Tunica, Billy Wayne (Susie) Goff of Tunica, Rheda Faye Goff, Lynn Goff, Kathy Caston, and Judy Goad all of Southaven, MS; and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
