Lee was born Leona Marie on January 25, 1932 in Chicago, Illinois to Lucille and Freddy Drzewicki. She was raised speaking Polish, and was passionate about her Polish heritage. Lee was always happy, loving, the life of any party… so caring, so thoughtful, always so generous, and so much fun. She was easy to love. She would greet anyone who entered her home with a hug and kiss on the cheek. She loved her family and friends and she loved life.
