A native of Madison County, she was a daughter of the late Fred and Lottie English Bailey and was preceded in death by her husband Porter Wallin; brothers Grady, Riley, Junior and Farris Bailey; sister, Ruth Bailey and a grandson Thomas Ponder.
JB enjoyed gardening and beekeeping, but was most passionate about cooking and feeding people whether it was with her job as a cook, making cakes to sell at the tailgate market, or at her home where no visitor or loved one ever left hungry.

The family will receive friends beginning at 1:00pm at Bright Hope Laurel United Methodist Church, of which she was a member on Sunday, January 12th with a funeral service following at 2:00pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Bright Hope Laurel United Methodist Church for a special project.

I remember with such fondness of both JB and her husband. They were such an integral part of the Wolf Laurel community. Blessings to all at this difficult time. I am home in New Zealand at this time. Ianthekate@gmail.com

There was truly only one JB. I worked with her many hours at the restaurant at Wolf Laurel and we always had a good time. She was no stranger to hard work. A wonderful cook she was always trying new recipes. I would not trade the times that we spent together for anything. I will miss you my dear Aunt.
