Mary ‘Missy’ S. Leonard


Dec. 11, 1946 — Feb. 28, 2017

Mary “Missy” S. (Resko) Leonard, age 70, of Spring Branch, Texas, passed away at home peacefully on Feb. 28 following a long battle with cancer and multiple other health issues, a battle she waged with courage, grace, humor and love.

She was the beloved wife and soul mate of Edgar “Sonny” Leonard.

Missy lived life to the fullest. She enjoyed traveling, collecting jewelry, gardening, painting, writing poems and short stories, and loved going to the casinos in the motor home. She had a great laugh and a beautiful smile. She had a way of making everyone feel important and special and would brighten the day of anyone she came in contact with by a kind word or witty remark.

Missy always had a positive attitude and a passion for life. Missy was an amazing wife, a very special and loving mother, fun and caring grandmother/nanny, terrific sister and favorite aunt. She was an original and will be greatly missed.

Survived by husband Sonny; sons Jeff and Edgar Jr.; daughter Judy; many grandchildren; brother Chet; and many nephews and nieces.
