Ethel was born on January 27, 1922 in Lewistown, PA to Sam and Rebecca Levinson, and lived there until 2011, when she moved to Fleming Island, FL to live with family.

Ethel was a close fiend of our (Wolf) family and especially close to my mother (Esther) who has passed. She was a regular for the High Holidays for many many years at our house on Sunset Road. She would always sit at the first bench entering the synagogue and could be be counted on to make minyan. About a week ago, I was watching old videos of my Dad's house in Florida of a Christmas party at Philip Wolf & Son and their was Ethel - she was family. The picture above is exactly how I remember Ethel.
