In addition to her parents, Lee is predeceased by her husband, Forrest W. (Hack) Bethune Jr., son-in-law James R. Geiger and her Bethune brother and sisters-in law. Lee met the love of her life, Hack, when she was just 17, while he was attending the US Air Force Glider Pilot Training near Lubbock, TX during WWII. They married after 4 months and she moved to Turtle Creek, PA to be with his family while he served overseas.
