She was truly one of a kind and her strong character will be missed. Much appreciation goes out to the entire staff at NHC Knoxville for their love, care and compassion, and to special niece, Julie Pryor, for her dedication and honor. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made in Lee’s memory to NHC Knoxville, 809 Emerald Ave. NE, Knoxville, TN 37917.

Make a pot of coffee, put on your lipstick and read a book. Rest well, chickabee.
