Celia Ruth Levy
March 9, 1928 ~ February 11, 2023 (age 94) 94 Years Old
Celia Ruth Levy passed away peacefully February 11, 2023 How lucky is our family to have had mother, grandmother and great grandmother for almost 95 years! Celia leaves daughter Patricia Nemeroff, son-in-law Wayne, daughter, Cheryl Fox, son, David Levy, daughter-in-law Robin, grandchildren Jocelyn Sable, Robert Sable, Jennifer Nemeroff (OBM), Neal Levy, Juliann Levy, Michael Levy, Brian Fox, Gila Fox, Lisa Fox Dwelly, Marissa Fox. Also she leaves the joy of her life, her great grandchildren, Dori, Ellie, Zoey, Mason, Emma, Ethan, Sophie, Doran, Eli and Toby. She began her life as the only surviving child of immigrants from Romania, Nathan and Libby Kraus. Her mother and father devoted their lives to her as a child because they had lost so many children by miscarriage. She was so very smart and was valedictorian of her high school class. At age 17 she went to visit relatives in Minneapolis, where she met Melvin, fell in love and was engaged to him 2 days later! Right before their wedding, her mother tragically passed away, which as an only child, was devastating for mom. She was supposed to move to Minneapolis, but decided to stay in Akron to keep her father in familiar surroundings. Mom and Dad built a beautiful life in Akron. Mom was involved in Pioneer Women, Hadassah and the best Mahjong Group ever! Those 14 women became her lifelong friends. Melvin was an adventurer so he took mom on many adventures. Either in the motorhome, in a cabin at Lake Buckhorn or in their home in Florida, my mom, after all the tragedy of her youth, had an amazing, joyful life with Melvin. She lost him 12 years ago, but went on to be the "nanny" for Joci's twins, devoting her life to helping raise them. Joci, was her birthday "twin" having been born on Celia's 50th birthday. Joci sat with her for the last month of her life religiously and I know that mom knew every moment she was there because she constantly said "JO, JO, JOJO"! We are so thankful to Dana Cutlip for taking such great care of our GG. And this was after caring for our Jenni for 7 years! She was a devoted companion to Mom, even up to the last day of her life. She was by her side through thick and thin, even last week mom kept telling Dana "I Love you". We can never forget what you have done for our family and especially for your GG
Graveside service will be held Tuesday at 1pm at Workmens Circle Cemetery, Swartz Road in Akron.
