Mary Lee

Published 4:21 pm Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Mary Sue Parker was born in Lynn on September 2, 1928, the daughter of William B. and Susan (Mills) Parker.

Mary was raised and educated in Tryon and graduated from Tryon High School. She attended Gardner-Webb College (now Gardner-Webb University) in Boiling Springs.

Mary Lee and her late husband, Terry H. Lee, retired to the Naples area in 1988. Following the death of her husband in 1997 Mary remained in the Naples area, enjoying the memories of the life they shared, the warm climate, beautiful surroundings, and their many friends. Mary moved to the Marbella at Pelican Bay in 1999, where she resided until her death. She will be fondly remembered there for her seasonal floral arrangements, decorating skills, and whimsical teddy bears which graced the halls and common areas of the building. Her dignity, grace, and kindness will be long remembered and missed.
