Baileyville - Joanna Lee Bailey, 60, passed away after a long and courageous battle with cancer on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at home with family members by her side.

Joanna was born in Calais, Maine on Nov 8th, 1959 and grew up in Milltown, Maine. She started working at age 15, mostly in retail, but found her calling as an EMT in 2000. Joanna worked as a volunteer for the Grand Lake Stream Ambulance Service. She also worked for Indian Township Ambulance Service along with DEEMS & Mayo Ambulance Services before working at Calais Fire where her heart was for nine plus years both as a firefighter & Advanced EMT. At the same time, she was working at Walmart as a pharmacy tech/cashier prior to her illness.

Joanna was a longtime member of the Spednic Club in Baileyville and enjoyed league bowling for many years.

Joanna is survived by her sons, Christopher Waycott of Bangor, Maine and Kyle Bailey of Baileyville along with her furry companion, Abby. She is also survived by her sisters, Brenda Smalle of Phoenix, AZ and Lynn Mattei of Lemon Grove, CA and her brothers, Randall Redding of Buckley, WA and Kevin Redding of Guilford, Me. along with one niece and one nephew.

Joanna was predeceased by her parents, Otis & Joyce Redding of Milltown, ME, her grandparents, Austin & Ethel Ackley of Milltown, ME and William O & Harriet Redding of Milltown, ME.

Joanna was most grateful for her long-time friend, Donna Barry. Esther Tozier was by her side from beginning to end of her lengthy illness and other friends too numerous to mention.

Services will be held at the Calais Cemetery at the Firefighter’s section at a later date.

Donations may be made in her name to Lafayette Family Cancer Center 33 Whiting Hill Rd, Brewer, ME 04412. Or donations to Calais Fire Association, North St., Calais, ME 04619. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
