I have many wonderful memories of Jennie Levy. My mother and Jennie grew up together and stayed very close throughout their lives. Jennie was close with our whole family, and Jennie was a very special person and influence in my life. I recall spending many happy times at her home, talking, laughing, kibbitzing, noshing on her delicious homemade brownies, playing with her dog ("Brownie"), inhaling her out-of-this-world, home-baked, golden-brown, macaroni and cheese, and enjoying her warm and caring friendship. Wonderful memories of a very special person. May her memory be a blessing.

I recall a story about children building sand castles. When the waves pummeled the structures back to sand, the children just laughed and built another. Things are built, ruined, and built again, but what endures is friendship and sharing. I recall with affection Jennie Levy and her house on Arthur Avenue; her creative artistic skills; her cooking; visiting with her and Mike; meeting up with them at a footwear show in Manhattan; and most importantly, her lifelong friendship with my mother since their childhoods in W-B. May her memory be for a blessing. ~The Mark Family

Mrs. Jennie Levy will be missed. I was a frequent guest in her home and her son, David, was my best friend. Jennie always made me feel welcome and after he son's passing we continued speaking on and off through the years. She, too, was my friend. Her kind words will be what I will always remember. To her family, please accept my heartfelt condolences.
May her memory be a blessing.
