Leslie Ann Bailey, 54, began her journey to heaven on Sunday July 23, 2017 after a long battle with cancer.

Leslie was born on November 4th, 1962. She was raised in a large, loving family in Lake Isabella, California. She had 5 brothers and 4 sisters. Leslie graduated with Kern Valley High School's Class of 1980. In high school, Leslie was the head cheerleader and homecoming queen. After graduating high school, Leslie went on to become a junior accountant from Central California Commercial College.

Throughout her life, Leslie worked a variety of jobs. She worked as a bookkeeper for a machine shop before opening her own Decorating Den franchise store. After getting married, she focused her attention on her husband's business, Bailey's Flooring Gallery, and her children. For the next fifteen years she was a devoted wife and mother to her husband and three children. After supporting her children throughout their high school careers, she created her Estate Sale business, Bailey's Estate Sales and Treasures.

Leslie was a loving wife to Craig Randall Bailey I, as well as a selfless mother to three children: Craig Randall Bailey II, Sarah Diane Bailey and Jake Joseph Bailey. She will always be remembered for her enduring work ethic, contagious smile, and ability to enjoy the little things in life.
