Chamberlin founded Lee Chamberlin’s Playwrights’ Inn Project, which was created to assist underserved playwrights with the development process of their plays. Up until her death, Chamberlin served on the board of directors as its president.

Chamberlin is survived by her father, Bernando LaPallo, a supercentenarian, sister Nandra Gant, daughter Erika Chamberlin and son Matthew Chamberlin. She had two grandchildren.
