With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Margaret Jean (Bailey) Reed, a beacon of love and nurturing spirit to all who knew her. Born on June 22, 1935, in London, UK, to William Victor Bailey and Iris (Dean) Bailey, Margaret peacefully left us on January 14, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of kindness and resilience. She spent most of her life in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she not only raised a family but also touched countless lives as a dedicated nurse.\n\nMargaret had a special fondness for the simple pleasures of life. She found joy in the serenity of gardening, the charm of bird statues, the beauty of tea sets, and the thrill of fishing. These hobbies were an extension of her personality - calm, loving, and nurturing. She was a devout member of her church, where teaching Sunday school, taking the youth groups to camp, and singing in the choir are just a few examples of how she served in her faith. \n\nMargaret was preceded in death by her parents, William and Iris Bailey. She is survived by her loving spouse, William Reed, who will forever cherish the beautiful moments they shared, the laughter they enjoyed, and the love they nurtured together. Margaret is also survived by her daughter, Susan Gail Ward and husband, Bill; sons, Dean Allen Reed and wife, Alana and Michael John Reed and wife, Shirley; sister, Patty Skipp; 8 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren. \n\nMargaret's life will be celebrated on Friday, 19 Jan 2024 at 10:00am CST at View Acres Baptist Church, 2327 South 65th West Avenue, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 74107. Her life journey will find its peaceful closure on the same day at 11:30am CST in Woodland Memorial Park Cemetery, 1200 North Cleveland Avenue, Sand Springs, Oklahoma, 74063.\n\nWe invite all who knew and loved Margaret to share their memories and upload photos to her memorial page. In this way, we can all contribute to the beautiful mosaic of her life, celebrating the woman who touched our lives and left an indelible mark on our hearts. Let us remember Margaret Jean Reed, a light that shone brightly and will continue to shine in our hearts forever.
