Elizabeth “Betty” Lee, born on September 16, 1933 in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, passed away on October 1, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio. She is preceded in death by her loving husband James A. Lee. Betty is survived by beloved son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
In her younger years Betty served as a Sister of Mercy in Des Moines, Iowa until she was called to other work in the service of the Ohio Youth Commission at the Fairfield School for Boys, where she taught for several years. In 1973, Betty and her husband Jim started The Lee Group Home, where they housed hearing impaired, deaf, blind, and mildly mentally handicapped clients for many decades. Betty was always an active member of the Catholic Church, and enjoyed many different activities within the Church, including singing in the choir and administering communion to the elderly and infirmed. Her service to the community will be sorely missed.
A memorial service in her honor will be held on November 2, 2019 from 2-4 pm at the Shaw-Davis Funeral Homes, Clintonville Chapel at 4341 N High St, Columbus, Ohio 43214.
