STATESBORO, GA. — Mrs. Sybil R. Lee, age 77, died on Saturday April 5, 2014 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah. The Pine bluff, Ark. native was a 1957 graduate of Conway Arkansas State and received her Master’s Degree in 1959 from LSU. She moved to Bulloch County in 1970. She retired from Brooklet Elementary as librarian after 21 years of service. Mrs. Lee was a member of Trinity Presbyterian Church. She was preceded in death by her husband Gary Lee.
All that knew “Ms. Sybil” loved her spirit. She was always known as a true lady who loved to read, loved her friends, and her family.
She was a member of the Cherokee Rose Garden Club for many years and enjoyed flower arranging in her spare time. She was at peace with God, and was eager and ready anytime the Lord was ready to bring her back home. We know she is whole again in heaven and dancing again with Daddy.
She is survived by her son, Bret Lee of Statesboro, her daughter, Missy (Brian) Nelson of Statesboro, her four grandchildren, Carson Lee, Lucy Lee, Taylor Nelson, and Aubrey Nelson, and her brother Charles (Rita) Randolph of Alexandra, La.
A graveside funeral service and burial was held on Wednesday at 11 a.m. in Screven Memorial Cemetery.
