Lucy Conner Lee
Lucy Conner Lee, 82, died Thursday night (Feb. 2, 2017) at Folkston Park Care and Rehab after a short illness.
She was a native of Nassau County, Fla. A member of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, she retired from Stone Mountain Handbags at the Darien Outlet Mall as a manager. She was a dedicated Christian that found joy serving her Lord and Savior using the gifts and talents He gave her to bring honor to His name.

She was a very civic minded person who served her community by advocating for every area of life in Brantley County.
