Gaylene Janet Lee

December 24, 1940 – August 9, 2021
With great sadness we announce Gaylene Janet Lee passed from this world on August 9, 2021 to be with the love of her life and soulmate Lloyd Hammond. Born on December 24, 1940 to Willard Lewis Lee and Emily Bennett, Gaylene was predeceased by brothers Charlie and Delbert, sister Doreen and son Paul.
Survived by daughter Susan, son Dale (Dana), grandsons Tyler and Jason, brothers Garry (Val), Terry (Diane), Bob (Jeanette), and sisters Margaret, Rita (Dave).
Gaylene was a beautiful gentle soul who had an awesome spirit, living life to the fullest with appreciation for all that she had.
She touched many lives with her kindness and love, travelling and living in England and Lebanon.
She was an avid gardener and crafter, loved nature, and saw beauty in everything around her. Throughout her courageous battle with cancer, she always had a strong cheerful attitude and was grateful to all who helped her.
A special thanks to Cheryl, Garry, and Val who helped make this journey an easier path. As well, thanks to all the family and friends who provided help in the form of food and yard work.
Thanks to the amazing staff at Cowichan Hospice House, the Palliative Care Team, and Dr. MacGregor.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice.
A Celebration of Life for Gaylene will be announced at a later date.Obituary
