Devoted mother, daughter, and sister

WATERBURY – Amelia “LeeLee” Fernandez Rodriquez, age 44, departed this life unexpectedly on April 13, 2023, at Saint Mary’s Hospital.

LeeLee was born on November 18, 1978, in Waterbury, CT, the daughter of Amelia Fernandez and Ramon Rodriguez. LeeLee attended Waterbury public schools and graduated from Kennedy High School.
