Mary Jane Ryan Leva, a resident of Titusville, Fla. (formerly from Southlake, Texas, Park Ridge, N.J., Warwick, R.I. and Braintree, Mass.), passed away on March 9, 2014 after a yearlong courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She passed away peacefully and surrounded by love. Mary Jane was a graduate of Tenafly High School and Saint Luke's School of Nursing. She was a surgical nurse at Columbia Hospital in New York City and on the medical staff at Lederlie Labs in Pearl River, N.Y. She married her husband John Ambrose Leva in 1957. In her retirement she was an avid golfer and bridge player. But her true passion in her retirement was traveling the world with her beloved husband John. She is survived by her loving husband, John Leva and her sister, Ruth Ann Murray and her husband Fred, her sister-in-law, Catherine Garneau and her husband Roland, and her brother-in-law, Bill Leva and his wife, Jean. Her sense of adventure and sense of humor will be missed by her children, J. Richard Leva and Marcia Carnes and her husband Christopher. Her smile and hugs will be missed by her grandchildren, Bryn and Marker Carnes. A memorial service celebrating Mary Jane's life will be held at 3 p.m. this Saturday, March 15th at the Chapel of Atonement on the Church Farm School Campus at 1001 East Lincoln Highway, Exton, PA 19341.
