Lee was a very selfless person, loved her concerto for orchestra so much she would drive up to visit and sit in her car listening to her music for a long period b4 coming in. She was well spoken and loved history. Lee was certainly a bright light in my life and will be missed and remembered for a loving spirit. Rest in Peace -- Lee..

My memory of Mrs. White--Lee; every time I saw her she was the most graceful, kind, gentle, and most polite person. She was an absolute lady. I loved her gentle spirit, yet you could tell she was a strong woman. What an amazing talented women she was too. I am sure she is enjoying time with the angels now. My sincerest condolences to all the family.

Lee was a classy lady through and through, she had the funniest DRY sense of humor. She would come off with these one liners that would have you cracking up. She loved her hot teas. In a proper cup, from a proper pot. She would notice things most of us take for granted, even in her advanced illness, the woman was intelligent. She is now probably teaching the Angels proper etiquette. And keeping God in laughter. I love you Lee thank you for gracing my life feels with a touch of yours.

I met Lee when Julia started coming to the salon. Anthony would do Julia’s hair and I would talk with Lee. It was wonderful to listen to her stories and to watch her find joy in talking about Julia. We will miss her very much. As we get older and have hard time it’s alwasy best to laugh because if we don’t laugh then we cry and no one likes to cry, and everyone loves to laugh.

I have learned from my grandmother that the key to longevity is eating cheese and drinking Earl Gray Tea, these two foods made up the majority of her diet. I think I got my love for tea from her, and every time I brew a kettle of tea I think of her.
Thanks for all the great times and all the laughs. You will be missed.
Your favorite grandson (probably)

So many years ago I met Mrs. White who became Lee to me! What a wonderful, caring and up front lady! The first time I met her she was making spaghetti dinner for the family and all their friends! Let me tell you that was a huge bunch of folks to feed. And through the rest of our school years, her home was open to so many of us kids! She was always available to give us advice and a stern talking to when we needed it. What a wonderful lady who I know will be missed by all who have known her though I know she is watching and wishing she could fix all our woes. I know she caught those purple balloons!
