Jean Ruth LeVine passed away peacefully at the age of 94 on January 21, 2023. Jean was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Bessie Simon, her husband Andrew and her son Lennard. She is survived by her daughter Sandra Della Vedova (Rod), grandchildren Andrew (Melissa), Lauren, A.J., Shira (Paolo) and Simon, and great grandchildren Ruby, Pacey and Russell.

As a Halifax native, Jean moved to Toronto at the age of 80. To have known Jean was an absolute privilege, she was a good friend, mentor and even mother to many. She was a very strong, independent, and successful businesswoman and her Toronto family was blessed by her wisdom and love during her years here. Thank you to the staff at the Dunfield Retirement Residence, especially to Josephine and Angie, her full-time caregivers and friends for the past three years. She will be laid to rest in Halifax on January 24, 2023.

If desired as an expression of sympathy, a donation can be made to Camp Kadimah in memory of Jean LeVine, who was one of Kadimah’s very first campers:
