Lee Irene Vertrees (Wilson)

December 27, 1950 — October 28, 2021

The Memorial for Lee Irene Vertrees, 70, will be on Monday, November 8, at 11 a.m. at Craddock Funeral Home in Ardmore, Oklahoma.

Born December 27, 1950, in La Mesa, California to David and Sara Wright Wilson. She died Thursday, October 28, 2021, at home in Hugoton, Kansas. She married Hugh Warren Vertrees, her soulmate, on January 1, 1971, in Tulsa, Oklahoma and had three beautiful children.

Lee was an avid seamstress, a master gardener and crafter. She was a teacher in every sense of the word. Teaching was her gift and those who were able to experience it will never forget her. She was the definition of beauty inside and out and carried herself in a way that subtly commanded respect. She was a strong, patriotic woman and was a member of Southern Oklahoma Republican Women. Her grandchildren will hold close the memories of adventure on RV trips with MeMe and Pop. Lee loved spending time with her family and was a devoted wife and fiercely protective mother. She was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Ardmore.

Survivors include her parents, David and Sara Wilson, Sperry, Oklahoma; her husband, Hugh Vertrees, Lone Grove; two daughters, Chaundra and husband Robert Holley, Dickson; Teresa Becker and husband David Wood, Lone Grove; her son Richard Vertrees and wife Lacey, Hugoton, Kansas; three brothers, Larry Wilson and wife Mandy, Tulsa; Ronny Wilson and wife Cindy, Sperry and Brian Wilson and wife Nadia, Atlanta, Georgia; a sister, Cheryl Davis and husband Norman, Norman; five grandchildren, Sawyer Wall, Mason Holley, Adrian Becker, Ava Vertrees and Cozette Wood; one great granddaughter, Baylee Wall.

We owe, with great respect, a thank you to Brandy Robson of Robson’s Funeral Home, Hugoton, Kansas for helping prepare Lee to go home as well as guiding family through this emotional time.
