Irma Lee Fitzgerald
Irma Lee "Skeets" Fitzgerald, 89, of King George County passed away peacefully Thursday, Dec. 18, 2008.
Born Oct. 30, 1919, her father remarked his tiny newborn was no larger than a 'mosquiter,' leading to her nickname. She was married to Leonard L. Fitzgerald Jr. and is survived by a daughter, Diane Lee Fitzgerald and her son, Hunter; a son, Michael L. Fitzgerald and his children, Jessica and Jason. She also is survived by her brother, Joseph D. Lee.
We remember her wonderful sense of humor; her compassion towards stran-gers, family and friends alike; and the sweet disposition that helped her weather the storms of Alzheimer's disease.
Skeets had a real fondness for the flowering dogwood trees. To celebrate this event and to accommodate friends and family members, her memorial service will be held sometime in the spring.
