Juanita Mae Leonard, 59, of Chesapeake Beach, MD passed away at her home Thursday, August 27, 2020. Juanita was born March 15, 1961 in Cheverly, MD to Stanley and Naomi (Messineo) Leonard. She was raised in Capitol Heights, but has called Calvert County home for the past 20+ years. Here, she received her diploma, and kept a warm and loving home for her children and grandchildren. As a woman of simple pleasures, Juanita enjoyed a strong cup of coffee, cooking, and spending quality time with her family, especially her grandchildren. “Momma” or “Ma” to her children, “Nana” to her grandbabies, and “Nita” to friends and family, she was known for making you feel at home and never let you leave hungry. She never had much to give, but she would give all she had. She was a true human being and left a legacy of warmth and love for all who knew her. Juanita is survived by her son Robert (Bobby) White, and wife Jessica, with grandchildren Jersi, Sonny, and Naomi; daughter Reina Andujar, with grandchildren Nicholas and Camilla; son Dominic Andujar; and son Jeremiah Long, with granddaughters Averyanna and Nevaeh; all of Chesapeake Beach, MD.
