Lee was many things to many people, but at her best she loved selflessly dedicating herself to making others feel special. She was a member of the Urbana United Methodist Church.
Lee loved her friends and enjoyed swimming in the ocean or lake whenever possible. She was a Browns and OSU football fan and tried not to miss a game. She treasured her trips to Virginia, Hilton Head, Arizona, Las Vegas and Mexico.
