Lee, Charles F. 84, baptized into the hope of Christ's Resurrection died Friday, February 22, 2014. Charles was one of three children of Henry Lee and Elmossie Conley. He was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Melvanah F. Lee, in 2004. They had two children, Darryl F. Lee and Leslie (Ted) Powers: grandfather of Michael, Erin and Daniel Powers. He was the brother of Henry (Harriett) Lee, Jr. and Pauline (Frank) Raymond, dear father-in-law, uncle of three and great uncle of two. Charles was born in Kansas City in 1929, but lived most of his formative years in Jefferson City. He left Lincoln University in 1951 while he served in the Army until 1953. He finished his BA at Tarkio College and then started his career at Defense Mapping and Aerospace Center as a Cartographer until he retired as a Supervisor in 1985. He then started his own real estate appraisal company, M and C Lee Appraisals where he worked until 2010. As a member of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, he moved to St. Phillips Lutheran Church when some members merged with the church after Mount Calvary closed.
