Lela “Lee” Beth Lucas of Sherman, Texas passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, March 15, 2021 at age 76 surrounded by loved ones. She was born in Savoy, Texas to Arnie R. Price and Flora Mae Glanton on January 29, 1945.
Lee had a 40 plus year career with Texas Instruments/Raytheon where she formed several lifelong friendships. She was a well-spirited lady with a special humor, who enjoyed brightening other’s day with her contagious laughter. She was a mentor who trained and instructed many peers with their passions. Lee was a dependable employee with a strong work ethic.
Her grandson, Tyler was one of her greatest joys. She never missed a game in which he participated. She knew just how to spoil him and he would do the same for his “Gram”. They had a very special bond; it was a joyous and memorable occasion when Gram danced at his wedding this past July. Lee was so proud of Tyler in becoming a physician and cheered him along at each milestone along his path.
Lee was an ardent Christian and a committed member of Loving Baptist Church, Sherman. She taught the Bible in Sunday School, occasionally served as worship leader and was known for her faith in the Lord. For years, she regularly volunteered at Center Street Nursing Home. At Christmas, she made certain each resident received a gift.
Lela was preceded in death by her parents, A.R. and Flora Mae Price; brothers, Neil Price, Grady Price, Teddie Price; sisters, Jerrie Price, Dorothy Riviere.
She is survived by her daughter, Tracy Lucas of Sherman, Texas; grandson, Tyler Cobbs and wife Rachael of Tulsa, Oklahoma; along with extended family and friends.

RIP Gram, you will be missed by us all. Your spirit will always be remembered.
My condolences to you as you experience this earthly loss. I went to school with Lela in Savoy. I pray God’s comfort on you as you traverse this valley of death.
Lee, you will be missed.
I am sending sympathy to all our families as we celebrating the life of a brave person. I know the past several years were not easy for her. I didn’t talk to Lee often,, but loved talking to her even with the miles we live apart. I am feeling sad knowing our conversations will be no more. Praying for the LORD to give Tracy strength now and the days ahead. My love to all of you family members.
