Lee, I will miss you so. Catholic Daughters will be forever changed. You will be missed by all. Watch over us. To Teresa and Vic and the rest of your family may the memories held deep within your heart, help to soothe you. You're in my prayers.

We will miss a great woman, mother, neighbor and friend who always had kind words and delicious deserts for us.
You surely will be missed but not forgotten by many.
May you rest in peace.
