It’s pretty simple. The sun is out. The beach is beckoning. Old friends of different generations decide to take it all in together.
Who’s that lady?
Well, that lady … that sexy lady, as the song goes, is former longtime Fair Havenite Lee Weber (née Walker). Lee, long known as a model area mom with a generous spirit and heart, kicked the new year off with her 90th birthday on Sunday. Yes, 90! Yes, New Year’s Day.
This is a shot of her back in her modeling days in the late 1940s (roughly ’48, her daughter, RFH alum and Rumson resident Jenifer Weber-Zeller tells us). Bathing beauty, a/k/a Lee, modeled for Caroline Schnurer, a “very popular swimwear designer” of that era, Lee says.
In the post modeling days, Lee became Schnurer’s assistant, calling runway shows and such.
Lee now lives in Shrewsbury and is still looking runway ready.
See for yourselves …
Happy Birthday, Lee!
It’s a windy, winsome kind of day.
And down by the river in Rumson, a few people were out this morning painting that picture.
The sun was hiding, but the scenery stood out. It spoke to a few who took a moment to seize it on canvas.
Rumsonite Jenifer Weber Zeller got the picture and a glimpse into the start of a Rumson day for all.
Thanks for sharing, Jen! Paint the day with hues of purple … or something like that.
