Kay Dodson Nottingham Lee, 82, of Signal Mountain, TN, formerly of Richmond, VA, was surrounded by her family as she entered into the arms of her Savior on May 22, 2024.

She enjoyed birds, music, reading, flowers, and learning more about the Lord through Bible study. For many years Kay was an active member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Richmond, Va., where she and her husband, Ed, spent many years visiting those homebound or in the hospital.
