SAFFORD, Ariz. Emma Huber Lee, 94, formerly of East Helena, died Dec. 28, 2004, of pancreatic cancer at the home of her daughter in Safford, Ariz. Emma was born July 12, 1910, in Colonia Morales, Sonora, Mexico, where parents Arnold Huber and Estella Francom Huber had emigrated to join other Mormon colonists there. In 1912, her family fled Mexico during the Mexican Revolution and settled in Mesa, Ariz. She had four older sisters, all of whom preceded her in death, and one brother, Rey Huber, who survives her in Kanosh, Utah. She married Carl Lee in 1932 and they had four children. In the early 1950s Emma finished her college degree in elementary education, graduating from Arizona State College. She began teaching school in 1953 and retired in 1975.

In 1984 she moved to East Helena to be near her daughter, Nathel Martin (Thomas) and family. In 2002 with declining health and memory, she moved to the home of her daughter Karen Lines (John Wayne) in Safford, Ariz.

She is survived by her four children: Arnold Lee (June) of Elyria, Ohio; JoAnn Packer (C.H.) of Taylor, Ariz.; Nathel Martin (Thomas) of Clancy; and Karen Lines (John Wayne) of Safford, Ariz. She leaves behind 27 grandchildren including five originally from the Helena area: Michael Martin (Nicole) of Oceanside, Calif; Lisa McKee (Michael) of Chesapeake, Va.; Chad Martin of Helena; Ross Martin of Campbell, Calif.; and Jama McKinney (Matt) of Ladera Ranch, Calif., 48 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren also survive her.

At Emma's adamant request there was no formal funeral service. Family and friends gathered at the Bunker Family Mortuary in Mesa, Ariz., Jan. 8, 2005, and shared stories and memories of Emma. Interment was in the Mesa City Cemetery in Mesa, Ariz.
