Betty Jewell Lee, 87, passed away peacefully on January 4, 2023.

Born in Kentucky, and a long time Floridian, she is survived by her loving family, which includes her 5 children: Dave (Daphne) Lee, Michael Lee, Debbie (David) Greenidge, Peggy Locke, and Jennifer (Mike) Rahaley, her 11 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and 4 great-great grandchildren.  She is preceded in death by her parents Dorothy Higdon and Roy Jewell, her brother, Earl Jewell and her son-in-law, Bobby Locke.

Betty was a devoted mother and grandmother and lived for family celebrations and gatherings. Over the years, she resided in Vero Beach, Grant, and Sebastian, Fl, Charleston, SC and Erlanger, Ky. She worked in the Hospitality industry after being a homemaker and made friends everywhere she went. She loved being with her grandchildren, spending time near the ocean, playing cards with friends and neighbors, reading, listening to music, dancing, watching old movies, and singing church hymns. She discovered later in life that she was a talented artist and enjoyed painting. Her smile, infectious laugh and kind heart will be missed by family and friends, she will remain forever in our hearts.

Donations, in her name, can be made to the William Child’s Hospice House in Palm Bay, Florida.
