Rest In Peace! My "Golden Girl"❤ If I Would've Known That The Last Day I Saw You.Would Be The Last Time. I Would've Gave You A Thousand Kisses & Hugs.

I Loved Coming To Your House To Clean For You.You Gave The Best Advice And We Had The Best Conversations! I Always Called You "Sophia" Because You Reminded...

So sorry to hear about Mom. St John's Ave wont be the same without the Rhatigans!

We all will miss our Aunt Lee and her sense of humor, honesty, and kindness. I will hold you and the childhood memories of L.B.I. in my heart forever. My thoughts and prayers to John, Nancy and Lauren at this time.

Lee will be missed for sure. Growing up on LBI in the summers, Lee and her awesome family were the first to welcome us into their home and introduce us to life at the Jersey shore. We eventually bought our own home close by and remained life long friends. Lee always made me feel good and laughed often at my jokes and antics and made me laugh twice as hard. She was a hoot!I have very fond memories of her.

My spirited sister in law
Our fun and hospitable aunt
Forever in our hearts

The Donald Rhatigan Family

Lee Rhatigan was someone who you remembered when your life crossed paths with hers. I will always remember the loving matriarch of the 36th St crew with a warm smile and a feeling of shared joy and love of a special place and the love of family. John, Nancy, and Lauren, I am thinking of you

Mrs. Rhatigan was the kind of mom who welcomed everyone into her home with open arms. Rest assured that her inspiring spirit will live on in all who knew and loved her.

Mr. and Mrs. Rhatigan were friendly and loving neighbors who chatted with dog walkers. They cared about their environment and placed a Save Manresa sign on their beautiful landscaped property. We honor and thank such caring community members. Sincere condolences to their beloved children, family and friends. R.I.P.

Dear Children of "Lea" and John: We had a long and wonderful relationship with your parents. Absolutely one of the finest couples we could have had as friends. In our prayers and with our sympathy.
