Her joys in life were 1st and foremost her Religion and her family. Her garden was her passion.  She tackled many crafts and sewing.  She always welcomed you with a drink of tea and some goodie.  Lucky day was homemade buns.

Lee, a daughter of Italian immigrants, grew up and was schooled in Saskatoon, She moved to Biggar to work at SaskTel and met and married the love of her life, John Silvernagle.  Even when she was busy raising their six children, she worked at a variety of jobs.  She is remembered by many as the friendly face behind the desk at Biggar Union Hospital where she worked for 30 years.
