Services for Phyllis Marcella Kilby-Bailey, a Baltimore native who was an assistant state's attorney in Dade County, Fla., will be held at 11:30 a.m. today at the Wayland Baptist Church, 3200 Garrison Blvd.
Mrs. Kilby-Bailey, who was 35 and had spent the last six years in Pembroke, Fla., died Thursday of lupus at a Miami hospital.

While at Maryland, she was a bailiff for Judge Robert I. H. Hammerman, an intern in the school's Legal Services Clinic and local president of the Black American Law Students Association. She also had volunteered as a paralegal in a Legal Aid office, as assistant director of the Prisoners Rights Council and as a tutor in a literacy program at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
Her husband, Abe A. Bailey, practices law in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by two daughters, Camille and Lilleth Bailey, both of Pembroke Pines; a stepson, Mark Bailey of Pembroke Pines; her parents, Lawrence and Thelma Kilby of Woodlawn; three sisters, Theresa Ridley of Stuttgart, Germany, and Pamela Ruffin and Patricia Kilby, both of Baltimore; and a brother, Tyrone Kilby of Baltimore.
