was born August 17, 1917, at Sapulpa, Oklahoma, to George
and Alleyne Anderson, the oldest daughter of 12 children.
During the depression era, the Anderson family moved several
times, finally settling in Southern California. In
1942, Lee married Henry "Slim" Minga. Each brought
children from previous marriages to this union, so they were
his, hers and ours with the three children they had
together. Slim and Lee moved to Idaho in 1953 and Lee
went back to school to earn her nursing license of which she
was very proud. In 1964 Slim and Lee were divorced.
Lee moved to California where she met and married Clovis
Oxley who was very devoted to her. They moved to
Yoncolla, Oregon, where they lived until his death in 1990,
at which time she moved back to Nampa to be close to her
children. Lee was very outgoing, she never knew a
stranger. Lee's always ready smile and twinkle in her
eyes will be missed by everyone who knew her.
Lee is survived by her five children, Don Wallen,
Sacramento, CA, Roy Wallen, Rocklin, CA, Marty Nelson,
Melba, ID, Bob Minga, Boise ID, and George Minga, Nampa, ID;
a number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren;
great-great-grandchildren; and seven brothers and sisters.
She was preceded in death by her
parents, three brothers, three grandchildren, one of which
was our very special Sherry Nelson, Melba, ID.
