“Devoted, wife, mother and grandmother”

WATERBURY- Dorothy “Peggy” (Mahon) Leonard, age 75, of Waterbury, CT, passed away peacefully on Thursday, April 23, 2020, at the Vitas Innovative Care Unit of Saint Mary’s Hospital. She was the widow of Norman V. Leonard.

Peggy was born on May 16, 1944, in Waterbury, the daughter of the late Richard and Dorothy (Moore) Mahon. She was educated in local schools and resided in Waterbury and Wolcott, CT, as well as Port St. Lucie, FL. Peggy loved to travel and enjoyed dancing. Above all else, Peggy was devoted to her family, especially her children and grandchildren. She worked for many years as a Travel Agent with Scully Travel in Wolcott, and as a successful, licensed Realtor in the greater Waterbury area and in Port St. Lucie, FL. Peggy will be greatly missed by all who were blessed to know and love her.

Left to cherish her memory and honor her love and legacy are her children Edward Grant, Jr. and his wife Michele (Sorbo) of Waterbury; Tara Haigler and her husband William “John” of Port St. Lucie, FL; and Erin Leonard of Verona, NJ. Peggy was blessed with 2 grandchildren, Corinne and Kevin Haigler of Port St. Lucie, FL; as well as two stepsons, Mark Leonard of Venice, FL, and Bryan Leonard and his wife Leslie of Pewaukee, WI. She was predeceased by her two brothers, Richard and Francis Mahon.

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines and associated governmental restrictions regarding the pandemic, all services will be held privately. Once the restrictions are lifted, a community memorial service will be announced. Mrs. Leonard will be laid to rest with her husband in Florida at the convenience of her family. Casey’s Eastside Memorial Funeral Home has been honored to assist the Leonard family during this difficult time. Memories endure only if you share them, so you are encouraged to leave a condolence, words of comfort or a personal memory with the Leonard family on Peggy’s tribute page at

Dear Edward, Jr., Tara, Erin, Mark and Bryan,

On behalf of the Cammisa family, please accept our sincerest condolences on the death of your mom, Peggy Leonard. Our mom, Peggy’s Aunt Mary Moore Cammisa is deceased, but all of her children (Peggy's first cousins--Mary Frances, Jaye, Cathy, Laurie and Frank) were so saddened to hear of the death of your beloved mom. We remember Peggy so well--her infectious laugh, twinkling blue eyes and her warm and happy personality. Peggy was a favorite niece of our mom's and over the years, they always shared a wonderful bond.

We are so sorry for your devastating loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.

The Cammisa Family

To my family....while we've all gone our ways and let time pass, I have great memories of our times together as children and early adults. As I reflect, I'm blessed that we were able to all grow up together and learn from one another.

"Peggy", my stepmother, accepted my brother and I into her family with her children Ed and Tara when we were all young kids. More importantly, she and my dad brought a connection to our lives and she is a great half sister all reality, a "sister" that connected the bunch!!

Family times of going to Boston, Lake Saratoga, Camp, and hanging at the pool in back yard are all great memories of all of us together. I bet each of us would love to replay those moments.

With that, our lives will move forward. She was a wonderful women who kept us all together in good and bad times. She got us through dad's departure and now she can be with him forever!!

God Bless...
