Karen Lee, Parish Nurse
I was born in Pennsylvania, but raised in Long Island, New York.
I have 4 sisters. There are two sets of twins and an older
sister. I am one of the twins. I was raised in the Lutheran
Church, but when I moved down to Florida I joined a Baptist
Church. I have two children--a daughter who lives in Minnesota
and a son who lives in Cape Coral. I have 7 grandchildren and
just this year was delighted to become a great-grandmother!
Unfortunately, most of my grandchildren live in other states. I
have been a nurse for more than 20 years, specializing in
geriatric and psychiatric nursing.
I completed the Lee Memorial program in Parish Nursing in
response to the Lord's calling. I am honored to have been chosen
to be your Parish Nurse and excited to be a member of the staff
of Peace Lutheran Church. I look forward to meeting and working
with you all!
