Mai Lee was born in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, on March 26th, 1986. She then moved to Wausau, Wisconsin in 1990. She attended Wausau West High School but respectfully ventured to Sheboygan to receive her G.E.D. Afterwards, she welcomed her son, Jedrek Wablong Lee, born August 27th, 2005. She then decided to move back to Wausau to be closer to her family and friends.
She was a free spirit with a creative mind. With that, brought out her passion for painting and drawing. If not on canvas, it was on her rather long, artificial nails. Her gracious heart, made friendships grow with every hilarious joke or impressions. Her ear for music was diverse and sang her lyrics or bars with soul. She will be deeply missed by her family, especially her only sister, and all who knew her.
Brainard Funeral Home - Everest Chapel is assisting the family with arrangements.
