Not sure what to say?

Lee had a distinguished professional career with Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc., in Northbrook, IL for many years as a material scientist. It was always a pleasure to work with her.

Lee and I co-authored a paper titled "Design and Testing to Reduce Efflorescence Potential in New Brick Masonry Walls" that was published by the American Society for Testing and Materials.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

I met Lee about 20 years ago at the Civil War Roundtable and then later at my hospital. We became friends and I was always fascinated by amazing and varied life she lived. We touched base periodically over the years. I'm very sorry that I missed her memorial service. I'm also very sorry that she's not in this world any longer as she made it a more interesting place.
