June 27, 2020

RUTH LEVIN: On Saturday, June 27, 2020. She was born August 20,1924 in Pittsburgh, PA to Jennie and Herman Glass. She had an older brother, Alvin. At the age of 16, she met the love of her life, Sol (Solly) Levin. They were married in1943 by her father-in-law, Rabbi Morris A Levin, who was the head Rabbi of Adath Jeshurun Synagogue. After the war they welcomed their son, Roy, who was followed by their daughter, Leslie. Ruth was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. She was a lifetime member of Hadassah and active in the synagogue. She was the consummate at home mom taking care of her two children, and later doting on her four grandchildren, and six great- grandchildren. In 2011, after 67 years of marriage, Sol passed away and Ruth lost her greatest admirer. Thus began a new chapter in her life when she moved to Dallas, TX to be closer to her entire family. She made friends at the Tradition Prestonwood, where she enjoyed crossword puzzles, novels, Bingo, card games, old classic movies, dinner with friends, as well as holidays and special times with family. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren all adored her along with anybody else who knew her. To know her was to love her. She was the sweetest, kindest person on the face of the earth. She is survived by Roy and Helen Levin, Leslie and Freddy Brotsky, grandchildren Rachel and Pat Prock, David Brotsky, Lance and Sonni Levin, Allison and Keefe Bernstein, and great-grandchildren Ryan and Jules Prock, Lawson and Lake Levin, Calvin and Charlie Bernstein, nephew Paul (Ann) Levin, Richard (Evelyn) Glass, niece Marcialyn (Bernard) Robinowitz. and various cousins. Special thanks to Dr. Elisabeth Tilleros for her outstanding and compassionate care over the years, and caregivers Frey, Almaz, and Helen, who took good care of her, and kept her looking beautiful to the very end. Graveside Services and Interment were Private. Donations can be made to Adath Jeshurun Cemetery 217 East Patty Lane, Monroeville, PA 15146. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated.

To Leslie,Roy and the Levin family...sorry to hear of your loss. Our childhoods were nicely seasoned by the friendships and fondness of our parents for each other. That certainly transferred to their kids as well. Was always welcomed and treated warmly by Mom and Dad.

Ruth was my very favorite cousin. I have many fond memories of her while growing up in Pittsburgh. I know how important family was to her and she was the most energetic, active person I can recall from my childhood. My condolences to the entire family.

We had the pleasure of knowing Ruthie and Sol for many years when they lived in our building. They were a beautiful couple and we are fortunate that we got to know them.
