A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM MAYOR LINDA PENNOYER:
“We are heartbroken to share the news that sitting Town Commissioner, and former Town Mayor, Wanda M. Leonard passed away early this morning at Southern Maryland Hospital in Clinton, Maryland. We are all devastated and shocked by her sudden passing. Wanda was not only a fellow Commissioner; she was a personal friend.
Besides being a good friend, Wanda also made tremendous contributions to the Town of Upper Marlboro. I know she was especially proud of her work with our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), the Town’s first Municipal Government Academy, and so many other things. As more information about funeral arrangements becomes available, we will share it with you. For now, please pray for her family and her many friends. We will miss her smile and energy more than words could ever say. This is a tremendous loss to the Town of Upper Marlboro.”
