On Wednesday, September 4, 2013, JUTTA S. LEVY of Rockville, MD. Beloved wife for 52 years of the late Harold Levy; loving mother of Sharon (Jerry) Ricucci of Sterling, VA and Debbie Levy (Rick Hoffman) of Potomac, MD; cherished grandmother of Alex and Ben Hoffman; dear sister of the late Ruth Horwitz. Also survived by nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews and so many friends of all ages.  Jutta was born in Hamburg, Germany and came to the U.S. in November 1938 at the age of 12. After a brief stay in New York, she and her family settled in Washington, D.C. An avid movie fan, Jutta credited countless hours spent as a newly arrived immigrant in Washington's movie theaters for the unaccented English that she quickly learned. Jutta attended Roosevelt High School and George Washington University. She stopped her schooling to work in her father's business, Salzberg Costume Jewelry. Jutta enjoyed visiting customers all over D.C., Maryland, and Virginia, and loved her buying trips to New York and Providence. Later in life, she worked in the travel business and traveled extensively with her husband. A wonderful conversationalist, enthusiastic theatergoer, and always game for experiences and adventures, Jutta was an inspiration to her family and friends-and she was a whole lot of fun. Funeral services will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2013, 2 p.m. at Temple Shalom, 8401 Grubb Rd., Chevy Chase, MD. Interment following at Judean Memorial Gardens, Olney, MD. The family will be observing shiva and receiving relatives and friends at the late residence Sunday following the service and Monday and Tuesday evenings. Memorial contributions may be made to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, 100 Raoul Wallenberg Place, SW Washington, DC 20024, and to Jewish Social Service Agency, 6123 Montrose Road, Rockville, MD 20852. Arrangements entrusted to TORCHINSKY HEBREW FUNERAL HOME, 202-541-1001.
