Dear Levitan family
Shirley was a dear friend of my mother - Pearl Knudsen- Marhoefer. Pearl and Shirley shared many fond memories of working at the bank together - and Maurie and Shirley and Bill and Pearl remained life long friends until their passing. She was a lovely FUN lady - and I know Pearl always enjoyed her many parties she threw.
I am glad they are all now in heaven together catching up !
my deepest sympathies to all of you.
With Love - Lynne Marhoefer - Vavra
