Mr. and Mrs. Syd Lee lived in Barrydale (South Africa) for the last quarter-century of their lives. There they celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary in April 1994, as shown on the accompanying photograph.
Three months later, Mr. Syd Lee was murdered in their home, and then laid to rest in the family grave (see below). Mrs. Maud Lee was then hospitalized and later admitted to the Tomlinson Old Age Home. As his faithful wife, she too was finally laid to rest alongside her husband — after her son Dr. Lee preached at her funeral service on 14th October 1996.
