Margaret Elizabeth Bradley


Margaret Elizabeth Bradley, 87, of Grand Ridge passed away, Saturday, January 7, 2023, at her home. Margaret was a retired nurse of more than 50 years. She worked for the Department of Corrections and part-time at her beloved Calhoun-Liberty Hospital in Blountstown. Second to her family was her deep love for helping others as a nurse. Due to her influence, we have 13 nurses in the family. I’m sure countless others were influenced in nursing by Margaret. Also, she was a Pink Lady at Jackson Hospital for many years.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Hinton Bradley; her mother, Mary Edenfield; her father, James M. Harrell; and her brother, Silvester Harrell.

Survivors include her daughter, Jean Ramos (Nelson); sons, Kenneth Gilley (Deb); Danny Gilley (Barbie); sisters: Alma, Doris, Wilma and Felicia; brothers: James, Benjamin, Ronnie, Charles, Glen; grandchildren: Tina, Amanda, Melissa, Cassandra, Rebecca, Daniel, Shiena, Brandon Matthew Johnson and Mason Johnson; and 17 great-grandchildren. Special friends through thick and thin, Sue, Margie, Marilyn and Laverne, thank you for loving our mother.

Funeral services will be 2:00 PM, Wednesday, January 11, 2023, at United Believers Church in Grand Ridge with Rev. Kelvin Johnson officiating and James & Sikes Funeral Home Maddox Chapel directing. Interment will be in Cypress Cemetery.

The family will receive friends from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM at United Believers Church. Expressions of sympathy may be made online at
