Her favorite part about working at Lee Motors is visiting with customers and is thankful for the friendships she has been able to form over the years. She enjoys being active outside, cooking and baking in the kitchen, and has taken up a passion for repurposing thrifted items. Marilyn has two furry companions, a dog named Jack and a cat named Kitten, not to mention the Lee Motor Company, who is like her second family.
