Of tough southern stock and fortitude, Natha Lee was born on January 12, 1921 in Lincoln, AL. She was the youngest of six children. With the exception of her oldest sister Hazel M. Pugh of Graham, NC who is now 103 years young, all of her other siblings have preceded her in death. They are Lamar Phillips, Welburn Phillips, Ruby Freeman and Neda Phillips. Other loved ones preceding her are her sister-in-law Mary Sybil Roberts Ward, husbands Virgil Stewart, Charles Donald Roberts, Gordon Root Campbell nieces Leeanne Phillips, Betty Pugh and beloved daughter Anne Marie Roberts Savell.
Miss Nat was an admired member of the Garden Club, Camelia Club and United Methodist Church. Her corner lot on Fish Hatchery Road in Lacombe was often awarded the “Garden of the Month” and her beautiful Camelia entries seemed to steal the shows each year with blue ribbons. She was a substitute teacher in the St Tammany Parish Public School system and worked for several years at Southeast Hospital as a teacher.
Survivors include her sister Hazel M. Pugh, daughter Anita Roberts Williamson, son-in-law Richard Wayne Williamson, Gordon and Sue Campbell, Jr., grandchildren Paul Nathan Sibley, Ryan Campbell, Cheryl Williamson Pearson, great grandchildren Ryan Pearson and Matthew Pearson, niece Charlotte Anne Ward and nephews James Andrew Ward III, Andy Phillips, Charlie Phillips and Pastor Benny Phillips.
Thanks beyond measure to all of the people God placed in Natha Lee’s life to help her and her family transition and accomplish so much.
