Passing of Pat Levenson

Dear friends;

It is with deep sadness we are emailing to note the passing of our wonderful friend Pat Levenson. Pat passed away peacefully during the early hours of Friday, July 19.

In keeping with her wishes Pat’s privacy was respected during the past few weeks.   Pat remained strong and was alert until her final hours, with almost no pain as she retained her brilliant wit, dignity and calmness.

Her family is in our thoughts.

There will be a celebration of Pat’s life in the Fall. Information regarding a memorial fund in her honor will be forthcoming shortly.

Warmly,

Ahsia Badi, President
