Inside Diana Lee's End-of-Life Celebration

Inside Diana Lee's End-of-Life Celebration

On the last Sunday in April, Diana Lee hosted about thirty people at her hunting-lodge-themed home in Loveland. The occasion was festive, with a spiral ham, cheese fondue and a performance by a local musician. Dressed in a pink long-sleeved shirt and gray sweat pants, Lee looked at peace in the place she had called home for the past decade-plus. As guests arrived, she showed them her bedroom, which was decorated with artificial Christmas trees and garlands.

Lee had chosen April 28, 2019, as the day she would die, and invited a Westword photographer and reporter to her end-of-life celebration to document her final moments. Read our story about Lee's journey to the end here.
