Victoria Lee’s celebration of life, which was expected to be held in Hawaii last Sunday, was changed to a closed event for her immediate family only.
Rising MMA atomweight Lee, who went 3-0 during a brief career in ONE Championship where her elder siblings Angela and Christian Lee are both champions, died aged 18 on Boxing Day.
The ceremony was set for the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park and Funeral Homes in Kaneohe, before her burial. The funeral home had publicly announced her death this month, before Lee’s 26-year-old sister confirmed the news.
Angela Lee revealed the celebration of life “unfortunately” had to be closed off from the public, despite an outpouring of support for the family from fans and figures in the MMA community, because of the “media outbreak” after her younger sister’s death.
