Rosellen Moltack Levin passed away on Monday, February 20, 2017 at the age of 79.
She was a native Atlantan and graduated from Grady High School. She was a mother to many more than her actual children and Gammy to even more. She owned and ran the Wonderful World of Children, a 24-hour Learning Center with her husband Robert Levin.
She was a very determined woman, at the age of 13 asking her neighbor, Robert Levin, out for New Year’s on October 1st, insuring that he couldn’t say that he already had plans. Our Father, being the gentleman he was, couldn’t say no even though he was dating another woman. So started one of the great romances ever and they were married when Rosellen was 18.
Rosellen had three children, Arthur (Jo) Levin, Eryn Levin Bennett, and Sheryl (Richard) Arno. She adored her grandchildren: Jake (Alyssa) Bennett, Bryan Bennett, Lauren Levin, Jackie Levin, Eliot Arno, Pearl Arno, and Adam Arno, and her yet to be born great-grandchild, Bennett. Rosellen lit up every room she entered and would quickly become the center of attention using her combination of wit, storytelling and her pension for no holds barred telling of the truth.
Her Friday dinners were legendary. You only were invited once and from then on there was always a place for you at the table. She was a phenomenal basketball player. Lover of sports and a huge fan of anything her grandchildren were playing. She was a great baker but most of all she perfected the Challah.
Rosellen is survived by her sister, Dee Venzer. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to Weinstein Hospice Atlanta 3150 Howell Mill Rd. NW Atlanta, GA 30327.
A memorial service was held Feb. 21, 2017 at Temple Sinai in Sandy Springs. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
