June 22, 1932 ~ May 9, 2004
Levine, Bernee Frances
Age 71, born June 22, 1932 in Beverly Hills California. A lifetime resident of Southern California, she passed away unexpectedly on Mother's Day, May 9, 2004. A graduate of UCLA, she later returned to Long Beach State to obtain her Teaching Credential, and furthered her education at Pepperdine to get her Master's degree. Retired after 25 years as a kindergarten teacher at Hickory Elementary School in Torrance, her natural musical talents also allowed her to conduct her elementary school choir for many years. A zest for travel led her literally around the world visiting more than 20 countries. An animal lover, Bernee always had her faithful canine companions at her side. As a woman with a green thumb, she had many fruit trees and grew many varieties of roses, orchids and other tropical flowers from Hawaii. Survived by her husband Saul, her daughter Leslie, her son Larry, her daughter Laurie, and twin grandchildren Lex and Lacee. In heartfelt memory and love of a wonderful and dedicated mother, grandmother, wife and teacher, she will be missed by all her family and her many friends.
Services will be held on Friday, May 14, 1pm at Green Hills Memorial Chapel, Rancho Palos Verdes. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association.
