While obtaining her degree she found faith in the Lord and as a long time member of Capital Memorial SDA church in Washington, DC, she shared her love with others through many outreach ministries. She will be remembered as kind, warm, hardworking, no-nonsense but extremely caring person. Loved and missed by her daughter Dorothy Tovish and husband Stephen, son Arthur Lee Jr and wife Sally, granddaughter Krista Lee and grandson Camden Lee.
