Lee Owens, 92, of Summerville, Georgia, went to be with the Lord on September 15, 2020.
She was born Nov. 18, 1927, daughter to the late Henry Thomas Hendrix and Addie Mae Scoggins Hendrix. Prior to retirement, she was employed with the Chattooga County Board of Education. Mrs. Owens was a member of Bethel Methodist Church. She enjoyed reading, rocking on the front porch, watching the birds, and working in her beautiful flowers. She cherished spending as much time as possible with her children and grandchildren, whom she loved dearly.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Lt. Col. Furman M. Owens; brothers, Willard Hendrix, Bobby Hendrix and Wilson Hendrix; and sisters, Dot Elsberry, Henrietta Owenby and Edna Hendrix.
Surviving are her children, Mike (Michelle) Owens, Mitzi (Ken) Smith, Terry (Leslie) Owens, and Marina (Kevin) Lee. Also surviving is sister, Evelyn Jones; six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
A private graveside service and interment will be held at Little Sand Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery, where she will rest forevermore.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff at Oak View Health and Rehabilitation G Hall, for taking such good care of her when the family couldn’t. We appreciate their hard work and dedication shown to our family during this time of confusion in her mind, from Alzheimer's.
