~Devoted mother, grandmother, life partner, and friend.
Marie was called home on May 19, 2022, in Phoenix Arizona surrounded by her family by her side.
Marie was born on January 26, 1959, to John Sr. And Florence (Switala) Levonick in Philipsburg PA. Marie was involved in many activities in school growing up including cheerleading co-captain, volleyball, librarian assistant, and newspaper. Marie came to Arizona to visit her friend in 1985 and decided to move. She started working for the state at the MVD and eventually made a switch to la Mesa RV where she met Dennis all while raising her two sons (Ryan & Shaun). She ended up with a great opportunity and worked her way up to a lead sales and marketing manager at Desert Title and tag where she’s worked for the last 12 years. Marie enjoyed her job, worked hard, and was really good at it. She will be missed greatly by her work community.
Marie really loved her family and made sure they all knew. Even though she worked hard she still made time for her kids and grandkids. Often making sure they are all taken care of whether it was going to dinner, shopping (her favorite), watching the kid’s sporting events, or just hanging out. Marie has always loved Christmas time as she loved to give. Another favorite holiday was the 4th of July, with many years and cherished memories spent at Avila beach with all the family around.
“Marty J” was with her life partner aka co-pilot Dennis Linnell for over 20 years. They are quite the duo always making each other laugh and making rounds at local restaurants for dinner. They also shared many memories of traveling together to places like Lake Tahoe, Paris, Alaska, London, and Italy. But the greatest joy in their life has always been family. Meme will be greatly missed by all who knew her. “Forever and always.”
