June Arlene Lee (nicknamed “Deedo” by her first grandchild) went home to be with the Lord on February 5th 2023 while in Williston, Florida. June spent her childhood years on a farm in New Lexington, Ohio until she moved with her family to Detroit, Michigan. It was there that she met and married the love of her life, Leslie Robert Lee. They were married for nearly 55 years until Leslie’s death in 2001. They lived in Ohio and in Florida for most of their adult lives. They had 2 children, Glory Jean and Steven Leslie.
