Lee was born on April 19th 1951 in San Mateo, California. She was called home on June 01, 2019. Lee lived in several different states throughout her child hood, but later returned to California where she married James Bustillos. Together they had six daughters.
Lee was a very creative and artistic person. She also was very good at fixing things. She loved camping, fishing, gardening, and sports. She was very involved in her daughters and grandchildren’s lives. She tried to attend every event that she could. She always wanted to give her love and support to everyone. She was a very giving person and loved helping her
family and friends. She would give the shirt off of her back for them if she had to, and not ask for anything in return. Her willingness to help out whenever she was able, gained her the respect and love she received from so many people. She also volunteered at The Salvation Army, where she attended church.
During her life she had many struggles but managed to fight her way through whatever was bringing her down. She was a very strong, and independent woman. She raised her daughters to the best of her ability. She left a piece of herself behind in each of her daughters. She will always be loved and missed by many.
Lee is survived by her daughters, Veronica, Victoria (Fortino), Valinda (Esequiel A), Vanessa (Shawn), Valanna, and Vivian, her 36 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, many honorary children, and her pets Maggie, Molly, and Kitty. She is preceded in death by her mother Lila, her sister Linda and her brother Milo.
