March, 29, 1941 - Jan. 31, 2013
VANDALIA, Mich. - Wanita "Micki" Lee, 71, of Vandalia and Brooksville, Fla., passed away from cancer Thursday, Jan. 31, 2013, at Hernando Pasco Hospice in Brooksville, surrounded by her family.
She was born March 29, 1941, in Goshen, Ind., to Clyde and Alice (Anglemyer) Weirick.
She married Dale O. Lee on May 26, 1959, in Goshen. He survives.
She was preceded in death by her parents; one son, Michael Scott Lee; one grandson, Jeffery Dale Lee Jr.; and one sister, Andrea Kay McKenna.
Micki graduated from Jefferson High School in Goshen. After marrying the love of her life in 1959, Micki and her husband, Dale, started their family with two sons, Jeff and Steve, by 1962. From that point on her life revolved around her boys. She enjoyed taking them on camping trips and watching their sporting events. They were members of the Michiana 4 Wheelers Club.
Dale and Micki started their RV company, Lee Enterprises, in 1985. The business was stressful and yet a joy because she could see her family every day. Her one true passion was her family. Micki felt that to be a good grandma all you had to do was try, and she did. She took pride in being Gramma Lee to five grandchildren and was so excited to be Great-Gramma Lee to Emma, who was born in early January of this year. She enjoyed putting together puzzles, reading books, sewing, gardening, playing cards and gambling.
Micki will be greatly missed by family and friends.
She is survived by her husband, Dale O. Lee of Vandalia and Brooksville; two sons and daughters-in-law, Jeffery and Sharon Lee of Vandalia and Steven and Elizabeth Lee of Cassopolis; five grandchildren, Erica Lee, Justin (Chyvon) Lee, Taylor Lee and Cameron Lee, all of Cassopolis and Peytin Lee of Dowagiac; one great-granddaughter, Emma Williams; and one great-grandchild on the way; two sisters, Peggy (Jim) Myers of Goshen, Ind., and Leella (Roy) Frey of Cassopolis; and one brother, Clyde Weirick of Elkhart, Ind.
Family and friends will gather in April at a date and time to be announced at Connelly Chapel Wagner Family Funerals, 202 N. Broadway St., Cassopolis.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Wagner Family Funerals, Cassopolis. Online condolences may be posted at www.wagnercares.com.
