Emma Elizabeth Lees

June 1, 1994 ~ June 23, 2020 (age 26)


It is with immense sadness that the family of Emma Elizabeth Lees announces her untimely passing.

Emma was born in Oklahoma City, OK on June 1, 1994 to Simon Lees and Angela Morgan. From the time she was a small child, Emma could light up a room with her smile and make everyone around her laugh with joy. Emma lived most of her life in Albuquerque, NM and after high school she trained as an esthetician, sharing her passion for self-care. She was a free spirit who loved to travel and explore the world, most recently spending four months exploring South America. Emma lived a very full life in her short 26 years.

She is survived by her father Simon and his wife Lee Ann; her mother Angela and her wife Brandy; sisters: Adelle and Claire, brother-in-law Oskar; step-brothers: Jonathan and Jared; and grandmother Brenda Lees. 

She is preceded in death by her grandfathers: Kenneth Lees and Jack Morgan, and grandmother Opal Morgan.

Emma was a kind, loving, fiercely loyal soul and her many family and friends will miss her dearly.
