Her family settled in Tarboro, where she finished high school and attended East Carolina University where she earned her teaching degree. She was a retired educator with over thirty years in the Edgecombe County School System. Because of her diligence and tenacious support of learning and children, after retirement she returned to the school system to work with struggling students.

Always inspired by her love of animals, Lee was known for keeping horses and was always surrounded by her faithful dogs. She also enjoyed spending time with her family at their vacation home in Bath.
Her family was her greatest priority and she especially loved being “Granny”. Lee is survived by her husband of forty-two years, Bobby Knox; children, Robby and wife Rebecca of Raleigh, Bryan Knox and wife Jessica of Tarboro; grandchildren, Trey and Carter Knox of Raleigh and Katelyn and Jackson Knox of Tarboro. Her brother, Lynnwood Williamson, III of Rocky Mount and sister Sandy Williamson Eason and husband Scott of Raleigh, and was “Aunt Lee” to numerous nieces and nephews.
