She was born April 3, 1934 in New Bedford, MA to the late Arthur and Rose Alba (Cote) Picard. Lee will be remembered for her love of family and her faith.

She enjoyed knitting, crocheting, and cross-stitch and she did beautiful work. She enjoyed music and entertained family and friends with her singing and piano playing. She enjoyed her retirement years in Florida with her husband and siblings, playing cards, bingo, and shuffleboard. In her later years she appreciated all of her walks and outings with Denise and Michael. Lee was a proud and loving Wife, Mother, Mémère, Great Mémère, Sister (and in-law) and Aunt. Her smile and laugh would light up any room. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her. Her family was her greatest love and she was our greatest treasure. Her memory lives on through her family and all those she touched. She was preceded in death by her husband, Wilfred J.
