Gloria P. Levine, 90, our dear Mom, Nana and great-Nana, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of Aug. 27.
She is predeceased by Joel, her beloved husband of 45 years. She fell in love with Atlanta when she arrived many decades ago. She devoted her younger years to raising her three children. Later in life she adored and doted on her five “delicious” grandsons.
They love her dearly and still refer to her as their “cool Nana!” A person at home in any environment, able to turn any stranger into a friend, she was never as happy as when she was with her family and dear friends.
Gloria had a passion for the written word and used this talent to honor her loved ones celebrating happy occasions. Gloria lived her values with love, generosity, respect and dignity. She was a proud member of “The Greatest Generation.”
She is predeceased by her parents, Julius & Sayde, brother Lenny and great-grand-daughter Harley Jade, all of blessed memory. She is survived by her three children, Robert (Teddi-Jo), Alyson and Jackie (Tom); grandchildren Richard, Joshua (Brittany), Jason (Sarah), Evan and Ben (fiancé Meghan); great-grandchildren Brody, Micah, Riley, Mackenzie and Caylee; sisters-in-law Natalie and Carole; along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Graveside services were held on Monday, Aug. 29, at Greenwood Cemetery, 1173 Cascade Cir SW, Atlanta, GA 30311. In memory of Gloria, donations may be made to Congregation Or VeShalom, The USO, or a charitable organization of your choice. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
