Anne Levine Obituary
Our mother, mother-in-law, friend and Baba passed away peacefully on October
5th, 2021 at approximately 2:00 in the afternoon. Cause of death is pending but
she suffered from dementia for the last eight years.
Born Anne Kowalson on March 12, 1936 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Rose and
Hyman Kowalson. Anne would tell stories of working with her father in the garden
and asking him in Yiddish why he liked working outside so much even though he
was well into his eighties. His was response would solidify Anne’s personality for
years to come; “why would I waste time doing nothing when I can create
something new every day”.
Anne married Louis Fratkin in 1956 and four years later gave birth to their first
son, Randall David. The couple moved to the United States after Randy was born
and lived in Covina, Ca where they had their second son, Stuart Reed. They moved
to Canoga Park and then to a new home in Calabasas to raise their children. They
divorced in 1982 and she married her true love, Bernard Levine, in 1988. Anne
spent several years selling furniture at Stylus, Robinsons and Macys until she
retired in 2011. Anne will be remembered for her fierce independence, wry sense
of humor, being a supportive and caring mommy and her devotion to her
grandchildren, Jacob and Caitlin Fratkin. She is survived by Randy and Karen
Fratkin, Stuart and Monica Fratkin and Jake and Caitlin. Our Baba will be missed.
