Lee is survived by many nieces, nephews, other loving relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her husband, Clarence “Bud”; daughter, Patricia Kasmarick; grandson Timothy Kasmarick; brother, Felix Mattiacci; and brother-in-law, Jerry Griesmer.

A private family committal service will take place at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery.
