Elaine Janet Levey
December 6, 1929 – September 9, 2020
We lost our beloved mother Elaine Janet (Kamensky) Levey on September 9, 2020 at the age of 90 years old of natural causes. She lived a full life raising 4 children and working most of her life at the Ken McEachran Insurance Agency. She was a girl scout leader for her 3 girls for many years being very involved in their activities. She played the piano and keyboards playing any song you asked completely by ear using the black keys only. She also played the harmonica with her Dad as a child. She was an avid reader with James Patterson being one of her favorites and reading the Harry Potter series of books many times over. She loved to bowl and bowled on weekly leagues for most of her adult life with her husband. They also loved to dance at the Moose Club where you could find them on most weekends. When she was in her teens she was chosen to try out for the Rockford Peaches but her mother did not approve leaving her unable to fulfill a possible dream of playing. She was born in Rockford, Illinois to Mabel Williams Kamensky and Edward Kamensky on December 6th 1929. She married the love of her life, Donald S. Levey on October 22, 1949. They lived their entire lives in Rockford until 2001 when they moved to Merritt Island, Florida to be near their daughter Carolyn and her family. They had always loved the Florida weather and the beaches as well. She lived in a retirement community until 3 years ago when she went to live with Carolyn after her health was failing and Don had passed away. In 2019 she fractured her foot and had to go for rehabilatation. She lived her last year at The Cottages where she received loving, compassionate care by a very caring staff. We are forever grateful!! She will be missed and forever loved by her daughter, Susan (Bob) Bauer, son, Bruce (Diane) Levey, daughter, Carolyn (John) Hilde, and daughter, LouAnn Howell.
