Helen Anne Fee
Passed away on July 18th, 2022. Born in Toledo, Ohio on July 27th, 1930, to Mr. William Nagel Jr. and Helen Lomasney Nagel. Helen Anne Nagel (Anne) had one sibling, Barbara Francis Kull from Pine Hearst, N.C., who preceded her in death. Anne attended Denison University in Ohio and was a member of Kappa Alpha Theta.
Anne married Edward Hamilton Fee (Ham) in New York City on September 30, 1954, and moved to Fort Lauderdale. They were married for 57 years and have four children- David (Terry), Jeff (Michele), Elizabeth (Todd) and Michael (Lana). They have ten beautiful grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
Anne and Ham had a wonderfully blessed and happy marriage, filled with laughter and love. They were world travelers, traveling together or with their best of friends. They spent many a day visiting far away places, cruising the world’s seas, taking river boat cruises, and exploring historical castles throughout Europe. Anne and Ham loved to treat their entire family to weeklong New Year’s cruises that allowed the family to come together and enjoy one another. It was one of the most special things they did.
In the community, Anne was actively involved with her children’s schools by volunteering in PTA and other fund raisers. She was president of Children’s Opportunity Group, member of the Junior League, Lauderdale Yacht Club (LYC), served as a Pink Lady at Holy Cross and volunteered at the front desk of John Knox Village.
Anne’s hard work ethic made it easy for her to keep busy by having her own private line of custom ladies’ sportswear clothing along with a fine jewelry business that sold unique gold, diamond and precious gems jewelry. These two lines of business made birthdays and holidays extra special if you were a daughter or daughter in law!
Anne was an avid gamer, always looking for someone to play with. She was an outstanding backgammon player which allowed her to compete in many local tournaments. Her true love was bridge. She played 4-5 times a week and competed in tournaments at Holiday Park, LYC and on cruise lines.
Most importantly, we are confident that she is now resting peacefully with Ham in Heaven praising our Savior. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend to so many. She will always be missed and remembered.
A private family service will be held in the fall.
