LEONARD, Judith A. (Granziano) Of Burlington, formerly of Arlington, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on November 20, 2021, at the age of 75, after a 6 year courageous battle with cancer. The loving wife of William "Bill" Leonard of 53 years; the loving mother of Daniel Leonard and his wife Lorena of Arlington, Daryl Leonard and his wife Eva of Arlington, and Stacy Kneeland and her husband Steve of Billerica. Daughter of the late Tony and Irene Graziano; and the loving sister of Donna Limerick of Lexington and the late Edward Graziano. Judy lived in Arlington most of her life and graduated from Arlington High School, class of '64. She worked at MIT Medical in Cambridge for 27 years. Judy was compassionate and caring, and happiest when spending time with her family and seven grandchildren, Jala, Cali, Travis, Camila, Valentina, Ella, and Tony. Judy had a close knit circle/group of friends that continued right up until the end. Weekends in Jackson, NH and Kennebunkport, ME were a common gathering place with friends and family and are filled with wonderful memories. Children naturally gravitated toward Judy as she was a warm and nurturing soul. Her appreciation for all living things came through in how she cared for animals and the natural world. The fabulous Judy will be missed by all. Relatives and friends are invited to Judy's Funeral Mass on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 in Saint Eulalia's Church, 50 Ridge St., Winchester at 10 am.
