Mrs. Magdalene Patterson Lee, 87, of Heidrick, passed away Friday evening, March 11, 2022 at the Barbourville ARH Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Charlie and Lillie Deaton Patterson born on March 31, 1934 in Knox County.
Maggie was a retired clerk from the Kentucky Department of Highways and a member of the Highland Park Baptist Church. After her retirement, she worked in the meat department at Save-A-Lot where she made many friends. She enjoyed spending time with her sister, Mary Irene.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Keith and a brother, Cecil Patterson.
