My first memory of Mrs. Leveen was in 1954 when I was riding the school bus with Rilda and Julia. Even though the bus pulled right to their door she was always there to see her girls off to school. In later years I was privileged to know her better when my children were in school where she worked. She was always so pleasant and loved by everyone. Rilda. Julia and Lydia your mother was a wonderful person and I’m so sorry for your loss. Carolyn Howard Miller

Condolences to the family. I remember her working in the attendance office and letting me use the phone when I had issues at school. Very sweet lady and she had an impact on so many of us that attended Cass High school during the 90s.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Leveen's passing. She was always so sweet during my years at Cass High School. I had the pleasure of knowing her in my adult life, too, and still one of the kindest people. She always had a smile and an encouraging word for everyone. My sincere condolences to the entire family. She will be missed
