Lela Lorraine Lee, age 78, passed away on Saturday, May 15, 2021 in Boise, Idaho. She was born August 2, 1942 in Ely, Nevada, the second of the 4 children of Leo Lloyd and Mearna V. Lewis Lee. Lela grew up in Callao, Utah helping on the family farm. She attended Delta High School, then returned to Callao to help out her parents. Lela always had a happy spirit and a joyful attitude. She was a hard worker, both in her jobs and as mother to her six children. In the 70's, she worked as a TSA supervisor at the Reno International Airport. Later she found employment as an office manager at many Reno area businesses. In 1999 she moved to Boise, Idaho, and after a few years purchased a home in Nampa, Idaho.
Lela retired in 2007, after which she enjoyed spending all the
time she could with her children and grandchildren. She was a wonderful mother
and an amazing grandmother and great-grandmother.
Lela enjoyed putting on Yard Sales (she would even let her
neighbors throw in their items to sale). She enjoyed meeting and chatting with
people. She had a beautiful yard. She put a lot of her free time into keeping
it looking green and bright. She had deep love of the gospel and faithfully
attended the Grace Bible Church in Nampa as long as her health permitted. She
loved animals and doted on her adorable Pomeranian dog, Peanut.
