On Thursday, August 20, 2020, Lee Claudette Milio, loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, passed away at the age of 52 from breast cancer. Lee was born on November 29, 1967 in Vietnam. She moved to America at the age of two and lived in Greenville, NC for the last 19 years.
Lee’s presence in this world was a gift to us all and her impact will long survive her. Lee worked in healthcare as an administrative assistant and was a beloved coworker at Vidant for the past 5 years. In 2012, Lee earned a degree in Health Information Management. She was only a few credits shy of completing her bachelor’s degree at Mount Olive College when she got her cancer diagnosis.
Lee was known for her infectious smile and laugh, kindness and compassion for others, and her ability to see the positive in any situation. Lee had a passion for singing and dancing. She was part of the show choir as a teen and would never turn down a chance to sing karaoke. Lee also loved to travel. One of her favorite trips was to Vietnam with her mom and sister in 2018. She also loved spending time at the NC beaches with her family and friends.
Lee will be sorely missed by her two children, Jackie Lybrand and Keaten Milio, her son-in-law, Zack Lybrand, grandson, Beau Lybrand, her parents, David and Sue Gagnon, mother Mai Thi Dung, brothers Binh, Michael, and Thai Piotrowski, sister Annette Gagnon, and many nieces and nephews.
To maintain social distancing, a peaceful, drive-by Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 29 at Covenant Church Building B from 7-8pm. There will be a memory box for attendees to leave cards and notes for the family. On Sunday, August 30 there will be a service for her immediate family only from 2-3pm. There will be an opportunity to attend virtually for others who loved Lee.
In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Lee’s GoFundMe ( gf.me/u/x797jz ) which will go towards medical bills and the care of her 17 year old son, Keaten.
