Rita B. Levine Obituary
June 8, 1926 - December 25, 2016 Rita Levine, born June 8, 1926, died December 25, 2016, beloved mother of Lynda Johnston, David and Shelia Levine and Michael Levine, beloved grandmother of Seth Levine and Mitch Carson, beloved sister of Marjorie Mautner and Jeanne Mandell, sister-in-law of Charles, Edna, Lillian and Sharon Levine, still beloved former mother-in-law of Cristine Levine and Alex Johnston, dear friend of Belen Ortiz and many others, cousin, aunt and grand aunt of beloved relations too numerous to name here. Born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa, and a student at the University of Iowa, she accompanied her brand new bridegroom Lloyd Levine to Hollywood, California in 1947 and lived the last 67 years in Van Nuys and Sherman Oaks where she raised three children, worked as a school secretary with the Los Angeles Unified School District, owned and managed two motels and a small shopping center with Lloyd, and travelled with Lloyd throughout the lower 48 States of the United States in an RV. Especially in her later years, she contributed to and volunteered for many great causes such as the North Hollywood Food Bank, Women's American Ort, and the Los Angeles City Schools, where she read to less fortunate younger elementary school children. She was a member of the Valley Beth Israel congregation in Sun Valley. She was an empathetic person, a good friend and listener for many dear friends and relations, living and now deceased. She was always brave, intrepid and resourceful. She will be remembered fondly and missed by many. Service will be held on Thursday, December 29th.
