Roslyn D. Lee
March 25, 1966 ~ July 15, 2022
San Antonio, Texas
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas
Roslyn Dale Lee was born, March 25, 1966 in San Antonio, Texas to the parents Mr. Fancy Lee and Mrs. Addie Ora Mitchell Lee who were natives of Gadsden, Alabama. Welcoming the youngest family member were her two older brothers, Charles Lovell Lee and Olice Edward Lee and her sister, Phyllis Jean Lee.
The Lee family were close knit and adhered to their Christian faith. During Roslyn’s childhood, they worshipped at New Light Baptist Church and later New Covenant Missionary Baptist Church. Although Roslyn was born with developmental delays, she had a happy childhood and enjoyed attending church with her family. She was musically inclined with her favorite hymn being “Amazing Grace” and her favorite gospel song “Oh Happy Day”.
Ros was a contributing member of the family and responsible for washing dishes and sweeping off the front porch. Leisure activities included listening to old school music, including R&B, dancing, going for walks and bowling. Her favorite TV shows were The Golden Girls, Little House on the Prairie, Jeopardy and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She also liked playing with the family puppies, letting them out for recreation and giving them water. Jack in the Box was her favorite place to get a strawberry shake with cherries on top. She loved the San Antonio Spurs, especially the free coffee after a WIN during the play-offs.
Roslyn loved her family. A memorable trip occurred one summer when she had her parents all to herself and they flew to California to visit relatives. She loved visiting her cousins; Rita, Glen, Billy, Ben and Leroy, Uncle Leroy and Aunt Rose (Fancy’s sister). Ros had a special relationship with her brother Olice. They referred to each other as “Baby Brother” and “Baby Sister” and talked every night until his passing in February 2022.
Ros attended Special Education classes at Austin Elementary School in the San Antonio Independent School District. After the death of Mr. and Mrs. Lee, Roslyn grieved for them saying “I had a beautiful dream about my parents”. On a daily basis she also said, “I miss my parents”.
However, she looked forward to riding the VIA TRANS bus to her weekday activities at Day Activity Health Services. This allowed her to interact with other attendees and enjoy their companionship. She was especially fond of Candace, a center employee.
After a terrible accident, Roslyn endured hospital transfers, medical procedures and multiple surgeries for more than three weeks. On July 14th, Roslyn’s devoted sister Phyllis tenderly ministered to her at the hospital with prayer and soothing comfort. Early Friday morning, Roslyn’s soul took flight, leaving earthly pain, to rejoice and rejoin Mom, Dad and Olice in the arms of the Lord. Although Roslyn has been transformed to spirit, she has provided final gifts by sharing her skin and by giving cornea tissue so that someone else may see the faces of their loved ones.
Celebrating Roslyn’s life are family members including her sister, Phyllis; brother, Charles; niece, Regina Jo; nephews, Charles Jr., Olice, Jr., and Marcus and a special sister, Mary.
Whenever Roslyn was leaving someone, she would say “God bless you”. The family is very grateful for all expressions of concern and support. Please continue to pray for us. In Roslyn’s words “GOD BLESS YOU!”
