Bonnie Fay Rubenstein Levens, passed away May 3, 2020. She was born and raised in Sullivan, MO. Bonnie was the beloved wife of Dr. Phil Levens; dear mother and mother-in-law of Bob (Judy) Levens, Judy (Dr. Robert) Kramer and Dr. Larry (Debby) Levens; dear grandmother of Matt (Emily), Michael (Stephanie), and Lauren Kramer; Alison (Dong Zhao) and Caroline Levens; and Jake, Zachary, and Grace Levens; dear great-grandmother of Gabriel, Eli, Layla, and Mara Kramer; dear daughter of the late Simon and the late Minnie Rubenstein; dear sister and sister-in-law of Nancy Rubenstein (Alvin) Siwak.
Bonnie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin, friend, neighbor and volunteer. No relative was too distant, no person was ever a stranger. She and her best friend, her sister Nancy, grew up in Sullivan as the beloved children of Simon and Minnie Rubenstein, who instilled the importance of family and a great love of Judaism in both of them. She died as gracefully as she lived — quietly and peacefully, with the love of her life by her side. She would tell everyone who would listen that she was the luckiest girl alive, finding love with the lifeguard at Fidelmans resort in South Haven, MI, more than 66 years ago. Bonnie had just turned 85 years old and had celebrated her 65th anniversary with Phil last summer at their granddaughter’s beautiful wedding.
