LEVINE, Bessie (nee Gordon)
1911-2013
Peacefully, at the age of 101, on Thursday, February 7, 2013. Beloved wife of the late Mike Levine. Extraordinary mother and mother-in- law of Saul (Solly) and Ann, Joyce and Ken Morrison, and Steven. Grandmother of Jaime and Karin, Mischa and Marcia, Zachary and Catherine, HannaMei, David and Natalia, Annie and Issam. Great- grandmother of Dov, Alexander and Thomas; Sophie, Jack, Madeleine and Camille, Leila and Sebastian. Our memories of her are as a beautiful young woman, politically involved and social idealist, an intellect and voracious reader who always espoused fairness and civil rights for all, an advocate for the dispossessed and the challenged, demanding of her children to contribute, and mostly demanding of herself. Many thanks to all the staff members at the Lev Tov Residence for their undivided attention to Bessie. Funeral Service at Paperman & Sons, 3888 Jean Talon St. W. on Sunday, February 10 at 3:15. Burial at Beth Ora Congregation Section, Kehal Israel Cemetery. Shiva at her daughter's home from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. daily through Wednesday evening. Memorial contributions may be made to the 'Bessie and Mike Levine Memorial Fund', c/o The Mount Sinai Hospital Auxilliary 514-369-2222 x1334.
