Leonora Giustino, age 76, of Milford, beloved wife of the late Rocco Giustino, passed away peacefully at home on March 17, 2017 surrounded by her family.  Leonora was born in Waterbury on May 12, 1940 to the late Rocco and Mary Migliorisi Santagati.  She worked at Westport Development for several years before taking an early retirement.  Lee had a zest for life and made every occasion special.  She enjoyed her many walks around Walnut Beach, family dinners, baking holiday cookies and loved going on cruises with her family.  There was nothing Lee loved more than her family and she told everyone that they were “the best”.   She will be remembered as a warm, loving, kind and giving person who always put others' needs before her own.  Survivors include her sisters, Beatrice Manzi of Woodbury, Margaret Giustino and Johanna Kaizer of Milford, sisters-in-law, Mary Butler of Torrington and Genevieve Santagati of Waterbury, niece Marie (Donald) Brown and nephew Frank (Holly) Giustino and several other nieces and nephews.  Lee was also close with her great nieces and nephews including Donald and Cortney Brown, Rocco, Thomas, and Cheech Giustino, Alissa Grey and Mark Brown.  Special thanks to Mary Salvi and Linda Shea for their love and support.  Leonora is predeceased by her brother Carl Santagati and brother-in-law Roland Manzi.
