Lee A. Bally, 77, of Benson, IL, passed away on Monday, September 20, 2021 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.

She was born on February 29, 1944 in Berwyn, IL.

Lee was a homemaker who was an excellent cook and loved to serve others.  She also worked home health care in the area for many years.  She was a devout Christian with unwavering faith and was a member of Faith Baptist Temple in Eureka.  She loved her animals and got great joy from feeding her sheep and chickens, gardening, and just being on the farm.  But, nothing gave Lee more happiness then spending time with her grandchildren.
