Linda Gulley Bailey, 77, of Corbin, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 8, 2023, at Saint Joseph Hospital in Lexington.

Born in Muses Mill, Ky. on August 17, 1945, she was the daughter of the late Clifton Gulley and the late Aline Hinton Gulley.

Linda was a 1966 graduate of the University of Kentucky and later received her Master’s from Morehead State University. 

A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, her favorite moments were spending time with family and friends.  She also loved to travel and visited many places with her husband and family.

She had a special gift of lifting people up.  Her unconditional love for her children has made them feel special all their lives. 

Linda was known for her kindness, generosity, and sense of humor.  Her husband said that by just being herself, she made him laugh on their very first date, and was still making him laugh on the evening before she died.  Paul and Linda were married for 55 joyful years.

A faithful Christian and member of the Assembly of God Church in Martin, Ky., she was a beautiful soul who left a lasting legacy of love. 

Linda is survived by her husband, Paul Bailey; her three children, Pete (Sheila) Bailey of Richmond, Paula Bailey of Prestonsburg, and Adam (Teddie) Bailey of Corbin; her four grandchildren, Cole Bailey, Ethan Bailey, Eli Bailey, and Rose Bailey; along with many extended family members and friends.

In addition to her parents Clifton and Aline, Linda was preceded in death by her brother, Steve Gulley.

The funeral service will begin at 2 p.m., Thursday, June 15, 2023, at Boone-Nickell Funeral Home with Pastor Ray Davis, Rev. Jack Hinton, and Rev. Clint Stricklen officiating.

Linda will be laid to rest in Sunset Memorial Park.
