Mary Lee is best remembered for smile, laughter, love of her children and not to forget her fabulous cooking. She loved to entertain…elegantly. People across the country to this day speak of Marylee’s cooking. She enjoyed travel and spending time with friends and family. She also loved the Lord, music (R&B, Blues, Gospel), good movies, her beloved dog Diamond, baking, a visit with friends, spicy jokes, hats, shoes and dresses. One never saw her without a smile and her looking her best!
She will always be remembered for her wise counsel, her hearty laugh, and her love for her children. She had a gift of making people feel special.
We thank God for the 87 years of life given to her and the part of that life that we were able to share with her.
