Emily Lee DuMonde is a character from the soap opera Days of Our Lives, portrayed by Brenda Benet from 1979-1982. When Benet committed suicide, the character was written out.


Emily "Lee" is a gold-digger and she came to Salem when her boyfriend Byron Carmichael died and left his fortune to his half-brother Doug Williams. Lee married Doug and kept him from his true love Julie Olson Williams. After she had a stroke her sister Renee DuMonde came to town. Lee couldn't save her marriage to Doug and he divorced her.


Lee's daughter Renee DuMonde began dating Tony DiMera and Lee warned her to stay away from him. When Renee read her diary she found out that Lee wasn't her sister but her mother and that her father was Stefano DiMera. Now that Tony was her brother she married someone else, but then Daphne DiMera revealed that Tony wasn't really Stefano's son. Renee resented Lee for lying to her and she couldn't bear that and left town.
