VIVIAN (Levin)
Of Philadelphia, born Dec. 23, 1935, passed away at age 82 on June 9, 2018. Married 51 years to the late Eugene H. Leitner, she is survived by her daughter, Lisa Leitner-Bloomquist (James); son, Lee Leitner (Kina, dec'd); sisters, Bunny Lashner (Ray) and Marsha Levin; and grand-children, Josh Zugerman (Alice), Justin Zugerman, Liz McBride (Lauren), Nora Leitner, and Ethan Leitner. She also leaves behind her adored cat, Toby.
A dedicated wife, mother and grandmother, she also tutored elementary school children and was an advanced professional typist and office manager. Vivian was an avid reader and, after helping children rescue a frog at her grandson's daycare, had an ever growing collection of frog figurines given to her as gifts. In her own words to Lisa and Lee: "My life was your father and my husband, you two, and the grandchildren. I will finally be with Dad whom I loved since I was 16 years old and we will watch over all of you. We had a wonderful marriage and I could not have asked for anyone as special as he was."
Donations in Vivian's name may be made to an animal rescue shelter of your choice or the Free Library of Philadel-phia. A Gathering to celebrate Vivian's life will be held June 16th from 1:00-5:00 P.M. at a family home. Family and friends are welcome. Contact
