Mabel Anne Hutchinson Lee, former president of the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church and campaign worker, dies

Mabel Anne Hutchinson Lee, the first woman president of the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church and a key figure in Illinois Representative John Anderson’s independent-party presidential run in 1980, died Nov. 5 following a recurrence of ovarian cancer. She was 83.

“She never ran for anything, but the organizations she belonged to were always interested in politics, and I think she really took to that,” said her husband of 62 years, Charles Henry Lee, a civil engineer who preceded her as president of the Towson church. “She enjoyed voting and she enjoyed working in politics, but I don’t think she would have enjoyed having a position like County Council or anything.”
