Carolyn F. Lee
IRVING, Texas – Carolyn Frost Lee joined the Lord on June 24, 2012, at the age of 71.
At the beginning of her passing, Carolyn lived in Irving, Texas. She was born to Nonnilee and Roy Frost in Oklahoma City, Okla., on Nov. 14, 1940. She spent much of her childhood in Long Island, N.Y., where she met many of the people she called friends for her entire life. As a wife and mother, Carolyn and her husband, David Lee, of Little Rock, Ark., spent the 1970s and early 1980s raising their family in Hot Springs, Ark., where she worked for the criminal investigators at the U.S. Forest Service. The last 30 years of her life were spent in and around Dallas, Texas, where her entrepreneurial spirit led her into many business ventures. It was during this time that she met her beloved husband Ron Wert, who preceded her in death. Besides Ron, the happiest moments for Carolyn revolved around her granddaughters, family, church and politics. In addition to her passion for dance, the arts, charity, and entertaining friends and family, she enthusiastically served her community on the Irving Parks Board and Valley Ranch Flood Control Board.
Carolyn is survived by her son, Gregory S. Luse, of Plano, Texas; daughter, Julianne M. Lee, of Dallas, and granddaughters, Morgan N. Luse and Rachel T. Luse, of Plano; her sister, Norma Jean McCall, of Edmond, Okla.; and brother Carl Stanley Frost, of Metairie, La.; her close friend/cousin, Phyllis White, of Oklahoma City; many cousins, nieces, nephews, and her church family at St. Ann Catholic Parish, Coppell, Texas.
In her true fashion, Carolyn’s desire to help others resulted in her choice to donate her body to UT Southwestern Medical Research. Afterward, she will be laid to rest with family members in Oklahoma City.
A memorial service to celebrate her life was held Friday, July 27, 2012, at 2 p.m. at St. Ann Catholic Parish, located at 180 Samuel Blvd., Coppell, TX 75019, followed by a reception.
Although Carolyn was a fan of flowers, her wish was that anyone who so chose, would make a financial donation to either St. Ann Catholic Parish, or UT Southwestern Medical School.
