Bradley was born Dec. 25, 1939 in Natchez, Miss. to Michael Anthony Adams and Edna Gates Adams. She was one of four children, Peggy Ann Necaise, Alyce Cunningham and Michael Adams Jr.


She is preceded in death by her parents, brother, husband (Jimmy Ray Bradley) and grandsons (Charles Jeremy Bradley) and (Bradley Eugene Tanner).

Bradley attended Cathedral School in Natchez where she was a varsity cheerleader. She was married to the love of her life, Jimmy Ray Bradley, for 62 years. From that marriage came what she cherished the most – her family. She raised four children while working (MS Tax Office, McIntosh Brothers, Bobby’s Service Center and MS Forestry Commission) and due to her strong work ethic, she never missed one pickup line, game or event.

Survivors include children, Charlie Bradley (Lisa), William Bradley, Susan Bradley Tanner Pharr (Bobby) and Lisa Bradley Haydel (Cliff); grandchildren, Kyle Bradley (Juli), Craig Bradley, Jessica Bradley, Marcy Tanner Jones (David), Matthew Tanner, Leah Pharr Van Norman; Adam Haydel (Kim) and Michael Haydel (Angela) and great-grandchildren Gracie Bradley, Maddie, Emeri Kate; Tanner, Isabella and Annabelle Jones, Charli and Avery Van Norman; Logan, Hutch and John Bradley Haydel.

Memorial donations may be made to Cathedral School or any charity of your choice.
