Sharon Renee Levine

SHARON RENEE LEVINE died December 28, 2008 following an awe-inspiring, fearless fight against Hodgkins Disease. Sharon was born July 22, 1969 in Houston and grew up in Sealy, Texas. She graduated from Sealy High School and earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Texas and her law degree from Emory University. Sharon began her legal career in Houston as a court-appointed attorney representing indigent defendants. In 2001, she joined the firm of Richard Haynes and Associates. She was a member of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and the Houston Bar Association. She was driven by a passionate commitment to the idea that no one under any circumstances should suffer from the failures or excesses of the criminal justice system. Sharon was deeply devoted to her family, her friends, and her dogs, Avery and Luka. She is survived by her parents, Barbara and Melvyn Levine, her sister and brother-in-law, Janis and Larry Stone, her brother, Michael, her nephew Jacob Rosanno, and her nieces Rachel and Kayla Rosanno. She also leaves behind her aunts and uncles, Carolyn and Steve Leatherwood, Ricki and Joel Florsheim, Augusta and Sidney Levine, and Dana and Jerry Robinson. She was predeceased by her grandparents, Frieda and Gus Levine and Shirley and Mose Macow. Sharon and her family are deeply grateful to Dr. George Carrum, Audrey Scholoff, R.N., N.P. - C, and the out-patient and in-patient doctors and nurses at the Cell and Gene Therapy Unit at Methodist Hospital for their extraordinarily compassionate care. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Sharon R. Levine Endowed Fund for Cell and Gene Therapy in care of The Methodist Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 4384, Houston, Texas 77210. Graveside services will be held on Tuesday, December 30 at 1:00 PM in the Beth Israel Memorial Gardens at Woodlawn Cemetery, 1101 Antoine, Houston, Texas 77055.
