Laura Kathleen Lee
2/21/1918 - 1/28/2015
Kathleen, known as 'Kay' to family and friends, was the third of four children, Nola, Robert and Larry, born to Charles and Jeune McGrady of Las Cruces, New Mexico. She met Lyo Lee, the love of her life, at a local dance and spent her early years traveling with him across the United States in the horse-racing business. She then lived near two of her children, Terry (wife, Lil) and Cody (husband, Michael Cooper), in Tucson for the last 56 years. Her oldest daughter, Lyla remained in Miami, Florida where the family lived during the 1950's. Kay was a fiercely independent and fun-loving person and a devoted mother and grandmother. She loved to travel and was an active member of the congregation at New Spirit Lutheran Church in Tucson. She is survived by her three children, eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.
