Marcia Mae Lee, 73, passed away September 24, 2017 at her home in Clermont, FL. She was born November 26, 1943 in Covington, KY. Marcia is predeceased by her parents, Charles and Gertrude Mae (Lawrence) Justice. Her brother Gerald Thomas Justice and Larry Dean Justice. She is survived by her husband, Cleveland Baker Lee; her daughter, Carol DeAnn Meely, and her son, Richard Scott Lee. She has two granddaughters, Alexandra Elizabeth (Lee) Hadley and Julianna Loren Meely, and one great granddaughter, Caroline Belle Hadley. She has two surviving brothers, Kenneth Wayne Justice and James (Jim) Alan Justice.

Having moved to Florida from Kentucky at the age of two, the central Florida area was home for more than 70 years. She graduated Maynard Evans High School in 1961 and married her soulmate, Cleve in 1962. They had two children, DeAnn and Scott while Cleve served in the Air Force, stationed at Tyndall Air Force Base in Panama City Florida. Having met when Marcia was just 14, their's is a love story of nearly 60 years.

Over her life Marcia held several positions in the medical field from a receptionist and office manager to that of a customer service representative/supervisor for a major health insurance company. Some of her favorite "extra" sales positions included Home Interiors and Stampin Up. She had a way with people. She enjoyed hosting in-home sales events, helping with home decorating, and arranging that perfect floral arrangement for that special area of the home.

Marcia worked several years as the Secretary at First Christian Church of Clermont, now Real Life. She had a knack for keeping up with the pastors, keeping them on schedule, and helping to keep things running just a bit smoother day to day. She and Cleve loved their growing church family and serving the Lord. They enjoyed hosting and teaching their "Life Group" for several years -- all of whom are "family."

Marcia was a talented seamstress. She made everything from her own clothes to her daughter's twirling corp's uniforms (40 girls). She loved cross-stitching, crocheting, reading (later in life), painting, and and and.... She designed her and Cleve's "dream" home built on their five acres in Clermont in 1992. She loved her german shepherds over the years. She and Shuma, now three, held a special bond.

If you had to sum Marcia up in just five words, they would be - "Family" "Love" "Caring" "Compassionate" "Christian"

After several years of struggling with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, Marcia is now celebrating her homecoming with her Lord.
