A funeral for Catherine A. Lee of Pendleton, a former Portland resident, will be at 1:30 p.m. Friday in Grace Memorial Episcopal Church. Interment will be in Riverview Cemetery.
Lee died of causes related to age Tuesday in a Pendleton care center [December 15]. She was 96. She was born April 5, 1896, in San Francisco but moved to Portland as a youngster. Her maiden name was Alexander. She was a graduate of Washington High School and married C. M. [Chester Milton] Lee on Dec. 25, 1937, in Portland.
Mrs. Lee worked for the city of Portland’s Bureau of Health for 30 years and held the position of chief clerk for 17 years. She was a member of Grace Memorial Episcopal Church. She had lived in Pendleton since 1989. Her husband died in 1979.
Survivors include her nephews, Horace T. Byler Jr. and Alex M. Byler, both of Pendleton. The family suggests remembrances be contributions to Grace Memorial Episcopal Church.
