Elizabeth Lee Huang, of Nashville, passed away on July 16, 2022, at the age of 82. She was born in Bangkok, Thailand, on June 15, 1940 to the late Tai Ming Lee and Shau King Ho. Elizabeth was a Christian of the Presbyterian faith, and enjoyed cooking, tending her garden, and helping patients through her job as an interpreter for Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Tennessee Language Center. She was a gifted pianist who left home at 16 to travel the world, before immigrating to the United States to further her musical education. She worked in public radio at WPLN while raising her family in Nashville, then used her gift in languages to begin a new career as an interpreter in retirement.
