He was united in marriage to Miss
Lula Johns, of Boonville, Mo., March
27, 1908, at Sioux City, Iowa, and in
this union one son was born.
The deceased and his little family
resided in Sioux City until six years
ago when they came to St. Paul to
make their home here,
Mr. Lee was a well known and fa
miliar figure in Sioux City for many
years as he held the esteem and love
of all the good citizens.
Owing to the fact that he was ill
most of his life here, he did not get
to mingle with the people as he
would have liked and add to his host
of friends. For the past 10 months
he was confined to his home, and
most of that time to his bed of suf
fering almost unbearable at times.
Given up by several physicians he
clung to his little family with such
strength, uplifted by the hopes and
faith of his wife, until he could
stand it no longer.
The wife urgently requested him to
let go and the Master would, relieve
him speedily, and within the hour he
said, "Yes, dear, I give up." He
prayed continually that the Master
would take him home and grant him
the request that he anight have one
last look at his wife and boy. He

prayer was answered. He opened his
eyes, looked first at his wife and
then at his boy, closed his eyes and a
peaceful expression I illuminated his
face. All through his suffering he
was never known to be cross or com
plain, always smiling and cheerful
when not in actual miseryand many
times while suffering.
His wife devoted her entire time +o

This obituary could not be prop

sterling qualities of the man. His
home life was ideal, the word "No"
was not known in his vocabulary, at
