Passed away on April 27, 2021
Lenore (Lee) S. Rappaport of Tucson, Arizona passed away on April 27, 2021. Lee was born in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Tucson in 1967.
Lee restarted her career in Tucson with the District 1 school system, which eventually became known as the Tucson Unified School District. While working in the district’s Transportation Department, Lee met Jewell Pat Nichols, who would later become her husband in 2004 after her first husband, Reuben, died in 1988.
Lee loved cooking, plants, music, the University of Arizona men’s basketball team, sitting on her back patio enjoying her garden, and daily conversations with her sister, Sue Vision (Jerry), who passed away two months prior, on Feb. 26, 2021. Lee also enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren whenever possible.
Lee is survived by her husband, Jewell Pat Nichols, and her three children, Jodi Stachowiak (Stan), Julie Evans (Ron), and Robert Rappaport (Maggie). She also leaves behind eight grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and many friends.
In lieu of flowers, Lee’s family requests donations be made in her name to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona or the ASPCA.
