  1. We came to know Lee at Minnequa Medicenter through her roomate, Stephanie Ivan, our aunt. Lee was a caring and loving companion of our aunt for many years. When we would visit they were usually sitting next to each other in the lobby eating suckers, which they shared with other residents and the children in the day care. They always greeted us with a smile and a wave. Our sympathy to the family and friends of Lee.
