A celebration of life will take place in late April to remember Scotts Valley resident Phyllis B. Levine, who died in Santa Cruz at the age of 84.
Mrs. Levine was born and raised in New York City. After finishing high school, she attended Columbia University, where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in science. She eventually relocated to California and attended Sacramento State University, where she earned her master’s degree in arts.
Mrs. Levine started her working career as a dental hygienist but eventually became a professor of health education at Cabrillo College. She also enjoyed her time as a freelance columnist for the Good Times and the Scotts Valley Press-Banner.
Mrs. Levine enjoyed her travels with her family to places such as Europe, Africa and China. She volunteered her time as the host of a public radio program for seniors and as a docent at the Santa Cruz Art and History Museum. She was an avid reader, tennis player and swimmer and cherished the time she spent with friends at the Scotts Valley Senior Center.
Mrs. Levine will be deeply missed by her husband of 64 years, Robert Levine; children, Robin Calote, and husband Gary, and Samuel Levine, and wife Beverly; brothers David Satlof, and wife Judy, and Ronald Satlof, and wife Magda; two grandchildren; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Mrs. Levine’s life will take place at noon Sunday, April 28, at the Scotts Valley Senior Center, 370 Kings Village Road, in Scotts Valley.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Scotts Valley Senior Center, 370 Kings Village Road, Scotts Valley, CA 95066.
