Grace Irene Lee, 83, of Pueblo, Colorado, died July 14, 2016, at the Life Care Center of Pueblo. She was born July 5, 1933, at Albia, Iowa, the youngest child of Roy E. Lee and Florence Paswalk Lee. From early childhood she was nurtured by Helen Randolph Lee, her father's subsequent wife. Later, the family moved to Pueblo and then to Rye, Colorado. A severe attack of encephalitis in her late teens confined her permanently to a wheelchair. Though afflicted in body and spirit, she was an eager, cheerful Christian, easily moved to laughter and much beloved by the staff at the Life Care Center, where from 1996 she spent the remainder of her life. She was preceded in death by a sister, Mrs. Ruth (Louis) Putsche, of Seattle, Washington; by two half-brothers, Howard C. Lee and William Lee; and a half-sister, Mrs. Evelyn Lee Tucker. She is survived by a half-sister, Mrs. Virginia Lee Radke, of Grand Junction, Iowa, and may be survived by a brother, USAF Col. (ret.) Thomas D. Lee, whose whereabouts and condition of life are unknown to the immediate family. She is also survived by 20 nephews and nieces, including David A. Lee, and his wife, Janice E. Lee, of Ottawa, Kansas, who for several years sought to assist in her care. Graveside services were held July 26, 2016, at the Brookside Cemetery in Rye, with the Rev. Greg Borden of the Rye Home United Methodist Church officiating
