She had 1 son, Eric Robinson, with Ed Robinson. In 1971 she married Alvin Benjamin; they had 1 son, Antonio Benjamin.

Cassie Lee was a woman of many strengths. One of her greatest was the ability to love unconditionally. Not only was she a great mother, but she became an even greater grandmother of 9 and great-grandmother of 5. Cassie Lee was a well-mannered and sophisticated woman who lived her life with great vision and courage, and put a smile on the faces of all who were blessed to call her friend.
