Lee Claudette Milio, age 52, of Winterville, NC, passed away peacefully at Vidant Inpatient Hospice in Greenville, NC on Thursday, August 20, 2020.

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 ( ) which will go towards medical bills and the care of her 17 year old son, Keaten.

I met Lee in 1983, she was one of the nicest people I knew, big hearted and kind. Lee and I have kept touch throughout the years, I’m glad I was able to talk to her a few weeks ago. I will hold our conversation close to my heart. I pray for her friends and family during this time.

I first met Lee in 1984 at Seoul American High School , Korea. She was so friendly and happy all the time. She was on the dance team. My wife and I send our deepest condolences to her family.

I spoke with Lee about a month ago because I could a box of old letters that she wrote me over the years. She was so special that I had a box designated just for her letters and pictures. Lee was one of my first friends and my best friend when she attended Moanalua High School in Hawaii. I was so shy and she was an extrovert so she helped me come out of my shell. Back then it was too expensive to make phone calls so we wrote back and forth for years. She was very lonely when she first arrived in Japan and wrote me EVERY detail of her days there. We laughed and laughed at all of these memories. We always kept in touch off and on through the years. We got each other through some tough times. When she got breast cancer, she called me because I had it about 7 years ago. I was devastated when hers returned so quickly. I will always remember how crazy funny she was, her silly songs she would make up and her beautiful smile. My heart hurts for her family. I am rejoicing though that she is out of pain and singing her heart out in Heaven. I will miss you Lee😢. I love you dearly❤️
