Lee Andrea (Beckham) Catanzano, passed away suddenly after being stricken at her niece’s wedding, Saturday, August 12th. The beloved wife of Robert K. Catanzano, she was fifty-four years of age.
One of four daughters, Lee was the daughter of Theresa (Ohanesian) Beckham and the late James Beckham. Born and raised in Peabody, Lee graduated from Peabody Veterans Memorial High School.
While working in customer service for New England Copy Specialists, she met the nicest gentleman on the phone named Bob. He one day called back again to talk with Lee, and asked her out on a blind date! They agreed to meet at a local pub, and it was love at first sight.
After seven years of being together, they married in the United Methodist Church in Woburn and had celebrated twenty wonderful years together.
Lee was a proud Aunt to her nieces and nephews, whom she loved unconditionally and treated as if they were her own. A very kind, fun loving and generous Aunt, she was involved in all that they did; at home, in school, on the fields or on the courts playing all the different sports. The holidays and birthdays were also very special times she shared with them all over the years.
An avid reader, she particularly enjoyed reading mysteries and Stephen King novels. There were certain TV shows she never wanted to miss so, they were pre-recorded all the time, each week setting aside time to view them all. Lee had a great sense of fashion and always dressed “to the nines.” A passionate shopper, antique stores were her passion. Lee could always find something very unique and different to add to her collection.
Lee will always be remembered for having a wonderful personality and sense of humor and for being kind hearted, generous, and sweet. She was just the type of person to give you the shirt off her back and was always willing to lend a hand to those in need. A very versatile person, Lee was very well- rounded personally and professionally along with being very conscientious in all she did.
Lee, her husband and family always made time to spend with each other. Many different road trips to Rockport and Newburyport, combined with all of the very many wonderful gatherings they shared have left them all with a legacy of tremendous love and devotion.
Sadly, in addition to Lees father James, she was predeceased by her mother-in-law Ann Amendola.
Lee is lovingly survived by her husband Robert K. Catanzano, her mother, Theresa A. Beckham of SC, her siblings, Charlene Silk, her husband Bill of North Andover, Patti Beckham, Linda Koenig, her husband Bill,all of S.C, her aunt, Arlene McGrane of Methuen, her sister-in-law Gina M. Leto, her husband Joseph, her brother-in-law, Philip A. Catanzano, both of Woburn, and her nieces and nephews, Jessica, Joseph and Bradley Silk, all of Brooklyn, N.Y, Laini Fletcher, her husband David of Woburn, and Alissa Leto, her husband Brian Mulkern of Tewksbury.
