Lee was born in Calgary, the daughter of Ronald and Catherine Ganong. She moved to Lacombe in 1981 where she managed the Kentucky Fried Chicken Store until her retirement in 1997, earning her the nickname Gramma Chickie. She enoyed reading, outings to the racetrack and attending her grandchildren’s functions. By far her greatest accomplishment was raising her 6 children to become healthy happy adults, that she was so proud of. She was a beautiful, resilient woman with an incredible sense of humour. She will be dearly missed.
