HAVERHILL - Mary L. (Sawyer) MacLeod, 92, passed away on July 29, 2020, in Raleigh, NC.
Mrs. MacLeod was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts on June 4, 1928, the daughter of the late Charles F. and Virginia E. (Gindorff) Sawyer. She worked as a secretary in Washington, D.C. before she married the late W.F. (Bill) MacLeod in 1953. Together, for nearly 60 years, they raised 5 children and lived in Michigan and New Jersey, before finally retiring in San Diego, California. She was active in the Clan MacLeod Society U.S.A. and travelled extensively throughout Europe, the U.S. and Canada.
Survivors include her two sons Paul MacLeod of Billings, Montana and Andrew MacLeod of Sparta, Michigan; three daughters Mrs. Mark (Catherine) Kocher of Raleigh, North Carolina, Margaret MacLeod of Lakeside, California and Elizabeth MacLeod of Clavesana, Italy. She had fourteen grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
In these unprecedented times, due to the Covid-19 epidemic, there will be a private burial in St. James Cemetery where she will be laid to rest next to her husband. At a future date, when it is safe for her children and grandchildren to travel to Haverhill, there will be a memorial service. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Mrs. MacLeod’s memory to the Home for Guiding Hands, 1908 Friendship Drive, El Cajon, CA 92020-0501 or to the American Cancer Society, 30 Speen Street, Framingham, MA 01701.
