Sylvia “Dubby” Maron Levy, of West Hartford, passed peacefully on Tuesday morning, (July 23, 2013) with her loving family by her side. Born in Hartford, the daughter of the late Hyman and Rebecca (Munitz) Maron, Sylvia graduated from Weaver High School, and on Valentine’s Day 1942, married her high school sweetheart, best friend and the love of her life, Max “Marco” Levy. After spending their first years together in Hartford, they later made their home in West Hartford; a home built with the skills and love of both their families. Sylvia was the respected, beloved and cherished matriarch of the Levy/Maron families and truly adored by all who knew her. She leaves her loving, devoted and cherished children; daughter Shelly Levy of Bloomfield; son Michael Levy and his wife Shelley; and granddaughters, Alison Levy and Alexis Levy, all of West Hartford; and her daughter Madalyn Levy of Bloomfield. She also leaves her sweetie, dear friend and sister-in-law Sophie Levy; sister-in-law Judy Levy, both of West Hartford, and many loving, adoring and cherished nieces and nephews. Sylvia was predeceased by her beloved husband Max; sisters, Ida Horenbein, Ann Shore, Yetta Glider and Ruth Levy. Employed by John Hancock Life Insurance as office manager for over 26 years, Sylvia was also a lifetime member of Hadassah and longtime member of the Sephardic Congregation of Greater Hartford. She enjoyed many years of mah jongg with the ladies, was a fantastic cook (her brownies were the best), an avid Red Sox and Patriots fan, but most of all, Sylvia’s greatest joy was her family. She would warm the hearts of all who entered the house she made her home for the past 58 years. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by those of us who loved her. Her family is very grateful for the loving care for the past three years at DaVita Hartford North, especially our angel, Kim.
