Leota “Lee” Garrett Slagle, 82, of Frisco, died March 24, 2020 at Peak Resources with family by her side.

Lee was born October 13, 1937 in Clifton Forge, Va. She attended high school in Covington, Va. and went on to obtain her nursing degree from C&O Hospital Nursing School. Lee spent the first part of her nursing career in the Richmond/Hopewell, Va. area where she met her husband, “Doc.”

In the 1970s Lee and family fell in love with the Outer Banks and moved permanently to Hatteras Island, where she spent the next 25 years raising a family and working in the family dental practice. Approaching retirement, Lee and her late husband relocated to Hilton Head, SC where they lived from 1995-2016. She spent part of her “retirement years” working at The Cypress of Hilton Head Island Alzheimer’s Unit.
