Sonia June Lee, daughter of Col. A.R. Moxsy and his wife Nydia, passed away peacefully at her home on December 25th 2021.
She was born on the island of Jamaica in 1927. She grew up on a farm there and loved every animal. She married Geoffrey Lee in 1952 in Jamaica. He worked with British American Tobacco and was transferred to Panama. From there they went to Nicaragua, returning to Panama with Brown & Williamson.
In 1970 they came to live in Louisville. In 1984 June and Geoff founded The Animal Care Society, the first no kill animal shelter in the area. Together they were avid gardeners, keen golfers and loved animals. She was always a most gracious hostess.
June was predeceased last year by her husband. They were devoted to each other and were married for almost 70 years.
She leaves behind her nephew, David Crosby (Linda), Vancouver, Canada; her niece, Georgina Browne (Patrick), Jamaica; Chris Lee (Tracey), England; Jenny Temple (Peter), England.
Special thanks to Mary Kalb, her devoted caregiver.
Cremation has been chosen. A Celebration of their lives will take place in the spring.
Donations in her memory can be sent to The Animal Care Society and would be much appreciated.
