LEVINE: Anita Bernstein Levine, beloved wife of Alan Levine, loving mother of Daniel (Jessica Tisch) Levine and Max (Erica Temel) Levine, cherished grandmother of Larry, Harry, Ben and Lily, dear sister of Rae (Ralph) Waldman and Miriam (Joseph) Cerra, and adoring aunt, passed away peacefully at home in Montgomery Village, Maryland, on Nov. 1, 2021. She was happily married to her husband for 45 years. Anita was from Pittsburgh, and kept a very close relationship with her childhood friends. She was universally recognized as brilliant, with her friends calling her “Miss Brain Box.” Anita was a beloved elementary school art teacher in the Montgomery County School system for 30 years after previously teaching in New Jersey for several years. She awakened in her schoolchildren both creativity and imagination, giving students the tools of self-expression and the joy of art. She was an exhibits specialist at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, in Washington, D.C., silk-screening and making many of the exhibits. She was an active member of her synagogue and loved weekly Shabbat services and the joyful tunes. Anita graduated from Penn State University in 1968 as an Evan Pugh Scholar, one of the highest academic distinctions, after studying abroad at the London School of Design. Anita was one of a kind, exceptionally caring, and embraced her family and friends with unbounded love. PJC
