Jean R. Lee passed away on September 11, 2021 peacefully at her home surrounded by her family. Jean was born May 15, 1930 in Richmond County, NC and was the third of eight children. She married Richard Daniel Lee on September 23, 1950 in Ellerbe, NC. Their marriage was later sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple on June 13, 1952. Her life was full of service to others. She loved to visit the elderly and shut ins and would often bring her young children along. She would call everyone she knew on their birthday and would regularly call and check on family and friends. You would never find her watching TV, she used her time serving others and stayed busy being a mom and homemaker to her five children. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held various callings in the church. She loved serving in the Temple and served in the Atlanta, GA and Raleigh, NC Temples. She said her favorite church calling was being a Visiting Teacher where she could serve and help meet the needs of others. Jean was preceded in death by her father Duke Robbins, her mother Mamie Garner Robbins, two sisters – Dorothy Rummage and Mary Patterson, two brothers – Sam Robbins and Larry Robbins, and her youngest son, Eldon Lee. Survivors include her husband of 71 years, Richard “Dan” Lee, four children, Richard H. Lee (Gloria), Marla Green (Doug), Myron Lee (Sheryl) and Reda Lee. 13 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren, two sisters - Peggy Long and Barbara Adams, one brother – Jack Robbins and many nieces and nephews.
