LEVITIN, Lily (nee Fireman)
February 3, 1927 - April 13, 2014
Lily died surrounded by family on Sunday night following a tragic fall. Loving wife of Norman, mother to Howard, Jordan (Francisco Juarez) and Cheryl (Gerry deLeeuw) and Grandmother to Nata and Yukon deLeeuw. Lil will be remembered as a warm, loving, empathetic and wise woman devoted to her family - a family defined in the broadest terms, encompassing friends and the friends of her children. We all loved the quick smile and the bright crinkle of her blue eyes. We counted on her boundless kindness, open-minded and supportive listening skills and her ability to bring people together. Lil was an example of an active woman - outdoorsy, cottager, downhill skier, kayaker, world traveller and theatre goer. She was also intellectually curious, an avid reader and enjoyed learning about new things with her dear friends in the Discovery Group. Funeral Service will be held at the Jewish Memorial Chapel, 1771 Cuba Avenue, on Thursday, April 17th, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. Interment at Jewish Memorial Gardens, 2692 Bank Street. For those wishing, donations may be made in her memory to Jewish Family Services or the charity of your choice.
