Linda Lee

Obituary of Linda E. Lee

Linda E. Lee, 74, of Charlotte, North Carolina, passed away peacefully at her home with her family by her side on February 27, 2024. Born in Denver, Colorado, on December 27, 1949, she was the beloved daughter of Richard and Shirley Eccles, both of whom preceded her in passing.

Linda's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with threads of love, laughter, and an insatiable appetite for exploration. She was not only a devoted wife to her late husband, Joe Lee, who was her soulmate and best friend, but also a nurturing mother to her children, Nickolas Drozd, Tyler Lee, and Mekenzie Lee. Linda's love extended beyond her immediate family, sharing a profound connection with her siblings, Pamela Lee Fake, Todd Richard Eccles, and Jane Eileen Leonard, as well as embracing Nickolas's partner, Craig Pinchuk, into her heart.

Music danced through Linda's life as a constant companion. Her joy was found on the dance floor, in the energy of live concerts, and in the tranquility of melodies at home. This passion was matched by her compassionate spirit; Linda's kindness knew no bounds, always offering support and comfort to those around her.

A private service to celebrate Linda's remarkable life will be held at a later date and announcements will be made in the coming days. In a reflection of Linda's generous spirit, the family suggests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Crisis Assistance Ministry at, an organization close to her heart.

Linda's luminous presence will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Her legacy of love, kindness, and joyous spirit will continue to inspire and live on in the hearts of her loved ones. As we bid farewell, we take solace in knowing that Linda has found eternal peace. Linda will live on forever in everything that we cherish. Rest in Peace Nonee.

Arrangements are under the direction of Hankins and Whittington Funeral Service, 1111 East Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203.
