A dedicated military wife, loving mother, grandmother (Ganna), and aunt, Lee worked as a pharmacy technician over several decades ending her career at Cape Fear Hospital.  She was a member of good standing of Village Baptist Church and especially enjoyed her Sunday School class led by George Massengill.

Lee spoke often of how blessed she was with all the many friends she met throughout her life.  The family wishes to express their particular gratitude for the love and friendship of Ellen Barlow, Theresa and Larry Cornett, George S. and Susan Davis, Jr., her loving niece, Darlene and Chuck Thompson, Kurt and Linda Minne, and especially Ron Howard, her longtime neighbor who was always there when she needed him.
