Retro Look at a Model Longtime Fair Havenite for Her 90th

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!
