Frances “Penny” Bailey, 63, a known workaholic with perfect attendance, died on her day off which was Thursday, March 1, 2018. Frances was born September 13, 1954 in Burbank, CA. to Charles E. and Pauline (Dunaway) Moredock. After living in various places throughout her life, she eventually settled in Oklahoma and made her home. She raised four daughters who lovingly called her Mom. She was a devoted and wonderful mom who raised her girls to be strong women. Her favorite name was MeMe. She loved her grandchildren and enjoyed playing games and watching movies with them. Frances was a hard worker and never missed a day, until now. She loved her co-workers at Newcastle Gaming Center. She worked as a housekeeper, and ironically, could never keep her own house clean much to her family’s amusement. She had a great sense of humor and was more often than not a little feisty. She loved telling each of her children and grandchildren, in secret, that they were her favorite. Her smile, laughter and snarky comments will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She was preceded in death by her parents; step-father, Jay Martin; husband, Herbert Leroy Durbin, Jr.; brother, Jack John; and son-in-law, Thomas Evey, Sr. She is survived by her daughters, Sonya Mendenhall, Andrea Ward and husband Justin, Rebecca Gay and husband Ryan, and Margaret Selph; grandchildren, Tiania, Kourtney, Thomas, Stephen, Calvin, Kellie, Amber, Brooklyn, Hunter, Miranda, and Faith; great grandbaby, Paxton; brother, Charles Moredock; sisters, Loveda and Nita Moredock; as well as a host of other family and friends. Visitation will be 12p-8p on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at Bill Merritt Funeral Service. Services will be 1pm Thursday, March 8, 2018 at Bill Merritt Funeral Service with interment to follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.

Meme, definitely a funny, sassy, and an very special person. There's not a morning that i wake up wondering where she's at or what she's gonna say next. Meme will always be in our hearts, prayers, and on our minds. Now you dont have to yell through the house wondering what nana is doing or what were up to. All u gotta do is look down and there we are.

Penny was always smiling and so very sweet to us. We would occasionally see her at the casino and she was always busy working her heart out with a smile on her face. We would always say hi to her and give her a hug. We’ve known penny since Stephen was 2 years old and it seems as tho she never aged a day. She was such a beautiful kind lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family as they go through this difficult time. Penny you will be missed!! Love Michael & Karli
