February 18, 2005

Rosalind D. Lee, a homemaker and former secretary, died Saturday from complications of multiple sclerosis at her Gwynn Oak home. She was 57.

The former Rosalind Deane was born and raised in New York City and attended Howard University in Washington. She worked for several years in the late 1960s in social services in New York.

She moved to Baltimore in 1969 after her marriage to businessman Tyrone P. Lee, with whom she worked as a secretary.

Mrs. Lee was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1977.

"Throughout her lengthy battle, she never once complained or questioned her fate," said a daughter, Angelina L. Joiner of Chicago. "She accepted her illness and continued to fight. Her warm smile was contagious and an inspiration to all."

Mrs. Lee was a member of Epworth United Methodist Chapel, St. Lukes Lane and Liberty Road, where services will be held at 11 a.m. today.

In addition to her husband and daughter, Mrs. Lee is survived by a son, Tyrone Michael Lee of Baltimore; her mother, Erma Deane of New York; and several nieces and nephews.
