Obituary For Donna Aikens Lee
Donna Aikens Lee 65, of Haws Run passed away on March 7, 2021. She was born August 13, 1955 in Camp Lejeune, NC to Dave and Shirley Aikens. She was the oldest of three children and a military brat. She was primarily raised in Jacksonville, NC.
She met the love of her life William Thurman Lee in Jacksonville North Carolina in 1971. Amid some controversy they married on January 2, 1973 in Camilla, Georgia. They walked this earth together for almost 45 years. They were blessed with a daughter Janie and a son Tyrel. Tyrel added to that blessing with two beautiful grandchildren who they adored.
She had an open door and an open heart for her people. Her kid's friends became her "kids" and her friends became sisters. If you left her table hungry, it was your own fault.
Donna is survived by her mother Shirley T Aikens, her brothers Davy and Chris Aikens, her children Janie and Tyrel Lee, her grandchildren Hunter and Natalie, as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband William Thurman Lee and her father David Aikens.
