Cynthia T. Levinson of Pennington New Jersey and Fort Myers Florida passed away peacefully at Arden Courts Fort Myers on Tuesday October 20, 2020 as she was nearing her 90th birthday. Born and raised in New York City, Cynthia graduated from the Hunter College High School class of 1949. Hunter was the top competitive girls high school in New York. Cynthia distinguished herself by being elected and serving as President of the school government.
Shortly after graduating, Cynthia married Lawrence Levinson and moved to Washington D.C. She worked as the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of Agriculture while Larry worked and went to law school. Upon the arrival of son David and then Frank, Cynthia devoted herself full time to family. They moved to New Jersey, first to Scotch Plains where daughter Susan joined the family and subsequently to Pennington where Cynthia lived for over 40 years and volunteered at the town library. Cynthia loved to walk every day and became known throughout town as “the walking lady.”
Cynthia was the heart and center of the family- the thoughtful and wise person everyone confided in, the woman who always put everyone ahead of herself. She was a calm and friendly presence liked by all.
Predeceased by husband Larry, Cynthia is survived by her children, David, Frank and Susan Bixby; grandchildren Benjamin, Charles and Zachary Levinson and Nathaniel and Rachel Bixby and two great-grandchildren; and sister Joan Carlson and brother Peter Tyor.
Memorial services are private.
