Every day, it seems like there’s another report of someone dying young. Just recently, a reality television star join the others who have lost their lives in 2022. Sara Lee first rose to fame while appearing on season six of WWE show “Tough Enough” back in 2015. After She was such competition that she bested all her female opponents and eventually earned herself a contract to wrestle from the WWE for an entire year.
Lee’s hard work finally paid off in 2016 when she mainly wrestled other female opponents under her WWE contract. However, once her time with the WWE came to an end, Lee decided to focus on wrestling on the independent circuit and explore other opportunities. But during this busy transition period in her life, something else even more special happened: she got married!
Sara Lee and Wesley Blake, a former WWE wrestler, got married in 2017. They wasted no time starting a family and had three children together. The adorable family lived Orland, Florida where they decided to make their home.
While Lee wasn’t in the public eye as often as she was a few years ago, she still updated her Instagram account regularly for fans. She would share pictures of her family, along with glimpses into the intense workouts she did to stay in shape – all while maintaining a professional wrestling career.
Unfortunately, just two days before she passed away, Lee posted her final post. She shared a picture of herself looking into the mirror of a bathroom with gym clothes on. The caption reads as follows: “Celebrating finally being healthy enough to go to the gym two days in a row. First ever sinus infection kicked my butt.”
Just when Lee thought she had beaten the sinus infection, things went south very quickly. Shortly after her final Instagram post, Sara Lee died suddenly. Her mother Terri took to Facebook to share the devastating news that her young daughter had passed away unexpectedly.
“It is with heavy hearts we want to share that our Sara Weston has gone to be with Jesus. We are all in shock, and arrangements are not complete. We ask that you respectfully let our family mourn. We all need prayers, especially Cory and her children.”
Though the official cause of death has not yet been announced, it is clear that thirty-year-old Lee had her whole life ahead of her. She was a mother to three healthy children, the wife of a former WWE wrestler, and the daughter to a loving mother.
