Lillie Leonardi


On September 11, 2001 and in the post days of recovery, Lillie was utilized by the FBI to address law enforcement, government, and social service agency representatives assisting with evidence recovery and preparations for two memorial services at the Flight 93 crash site. She not only served as primary liaison to the United Airlines Humanitarian Response Team—presenting at daily briefings and interacting with surviving family members—but also escorted families to the crash site for the memorial services. Prior to her career with the FBI, Lillie worked as the lead law enforcement officer on two college campuses in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In 1984, she was appointed to serve as the first female police officer with the City of Arnold, Pennsylvania. A regular contributor to The Huffington Post and Heal Your Life digital publications, Lillie was a 2016 honoree at the Women of Achievement Awards, an annual event hosted with the non-profit Cribs For Kids®.

Before I Go

Memories sustained are not always kind to the heart. Sometimes, the emotions attached remain trapped inside, never allowing for the heartfelt sentiment to reach the surface. Before I Go is Lillie Leonardi’s first eBook and co-authored by her eldest grandchild. It is a tale about the healing power of forgiveness.
