Ben L Smith High School
Class Of 1968
ANNOUNCEMENTS

GREENSBORO Rebekah Christine (Becky) Lee, 75, died June 28, 2017, at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, NC. She had been a patient for two and a half years at Cone Health Cancer Center. The daughter of Russell B. Lee, Sr., and Idelle Kirksey Lee, she grew up in Kannapolis, NC, and graduated from AL Brown High school in 1959. She completed a bachelor's in English at Woman's College of UNC in 1963 and an Med from UNC Greensboro in 1968. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, R. Benton Lee, Jr. She leaves two cousins in New Jersey; her housemate and traveling companion, Eleanor Link; the latest of many canine pets, Barney; numerous friends, former colleagues, and students. She began her English teaching career at Lincolnton High School, 1963-1965, and moved to Greensboro in 1965. She taught at Ben L. Smith High School for 28 years until her retirement in 1993. Becky jumped at retirement to avoid being trained in computer record keeping. In retirement, she enjoyed traveling abroad, turning pottery at the Cultural Arts Center, cooking and entertaining, reading, visiting the coast with friends, playing bridge, and doing crosswords puzzles. People were drawn to her for her quick wit, insight, and generosity. She handled everything with grace, no complaints, and good humor. Friends are planning a celebration of Becky's life on Sunday, August 27, 2017, 2 to 4 p.m., in the Club House located at 4905 Towne Ridge Drive, Greensboro, NC 27455, at the Grande at Lake Jeanette off Lake Jeanette Road. A proud WC alumna, the class of 1963 being the last before WC became UNCG, Becky's annual donations continued for 50 years. Most recently she joined her classmates in giving a patio at Hinshaw Dormitory. In 1996, she initiated annual scholarships for two Smith High School graduates. Those wishing to honor Becky may contribute to the scholarship fund at UNCG Advancement Services, PO Box 26170 Greensboro, NC 27402 for the Rebekah C Lee Endowed Scholarship. Arrangements entrusted to Triad Cremation Society & Chapel 2110 Veasley Street Greensboro, NC 27407.
