LELAND — Belinda Long Bailey, age 71, of Leland NC, passed on 4/10/24 due to cancer. She has received the reward of eternal life with Jesus.

She was born on November 14, 1952 in Sumter, SC. Her late parents were Carl B Long and Bertha B Brown.

She is survived by her husband, James C Bailey,Jr of Leland, NC, to whom she was happily married for 43+ years.

Belinda’s father was in the military so, as a young girl, she lived in France and Germany, where he was assigned, but at a young age moved to Robbinsville NC.

She attended Cedar Cliff Baptist Church,although her parents didn’t take her,but loving neighbors took her each time. This is where she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.

Where ever she lived she served the Lord with the gifts she had been given: kind heart, caring attitude, genuine love for others, etc. She will remembered by her church families where ever she and Jim lived. Her 2018 breast cancer became stage 4 in March, 2023 and spread to her spine and stomach.

The family would like thank the staff at Novant Health New Hanover Regional Medical Center and Lower Cape Fear LifeCare for their care during the past 13 months. A Memorial Service will be planned later.
