Leona Levine

LEVINE: Leona Levine, on Wednesday, March 10, 2021. Born Jan. 7, 1921, in Braddock, Pennsylvania, to Julius and Bertha Rosenfeld, Leona lived a full 100-year life. Predeceased by her husband of 50 years, Arthur, her sisters Ella, Rose, Florence and Julia, and her brothers Ted and Albert. Survived by her loving children, Gerald (partner Janet), Arnold (Linda) and Linda (George), who was her primary caregiver and comforter in her declining years; grandchildren Jeffrey, Jill (Keith), and Aaron (Nicole); and great-grandchildren, Evander, Ella and Morgan. Also survived by her dear nieces and nephews, George Kohut (Geri), Sandi Oliver (Bob), Allan Levine (Jan), Susan Antis and Jack Sussman (Marsha); and by Mona Levine and always-caring Ruth Levine. She personified the adage that a Yiddishe momma — no matter how old or successful her children might be — never stops worrying about them. Through her advanced years she retained a sharp mind, a sometimes sharp and non-PC tongue, and the ability to take a joke, even at her own expense. Her extraordinary life spanned the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, WWII, the turbulent 60s, lunar exploration and the internet age. She was not going to depart it until she reached triple digits…and could vote in the November 2020 elections. Services and interment were held at Ahavath Achim Cemetery, Forest Hills. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. schugar.com PJC
