    Lee was the first child, and only daughter, of A.C. “Bert” and Mabel (Schwandt) Hafner, born on Oct. 2, 1926, in the rural Kansas community of Winkler.
    At the age of six, her parents and younger brother, Roger, moved to the Hunter, Okla., farm where she grew up.
    Some of her longest and closest friendships were formed with her classmates at Hunter High School. The Class of 1944 continued to remain in touch and Lee was instrumental in planning their reunions. She attended Phillips University, but her high school sweetheart had a bigger impact and they married in 1944.
    The oil field activity in western Oklahoma and Kansas lured them to various towns, where they spent their young married years finally settling in Hoisington, Kan.
    Lee was an assistant manager at the Griffin Hotel. Her hotel career ended with the birth of daughter, Lynn, and within 13 months, the draw of home brought them back to the Hunter area, where they farmed and founded an independent oil contracting business. Son, Bradford, was born in 1954, and the family was complete.
