Irene  Luxenberg (Levinson)
Irene B. Luxenberg died on June 12, 2018 at her home in Boynton Beach, Florida after a short illness. She was 95. She was born on April 29, 1923 in Clymer.

Irene was a lifelong resident of Indiana County. She lived for 58 of her 68-year marriage in a house in Indiana which she and her husband built. It was designed by her brother, the architect Ezekiel Levinson.

She was the youngest and last survivor of eight brothers and sisters. She grew up above the store, Levinson’s in Clymer, that was founded by her father, Harry Levinson, in 1906 and managed for many years by her husband, David S. Luxenberg, who died on Feb. 12, 2016.

In her later years she spent winters in Florida before settling in Boynton Beach nearly 20 years ago. She continued to spend summers in Indiana until recent years.

She was a graduate of Clymer High School and the Pennsylvania State University, which she attended during World War II, graduating with a B.A. on June 21, 1945.

She was a renowned cook and had a lifelong interest in cooking and collecting recipes and was an avid reader and loved classical music. She was an active member of Beth Israel Synagogue in Indiana and Hadassah.

She had three children. Her son, Stanley Luxenberg (spouse Sara), preceded her in death. She is survived by a daughter, Deborah Luxenberg (spouse Steve) of Takoma Park, MD and Larry Luxenberg (spouse Frieda) of New City, N.Y. She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Seth (spouse Audrey), Eli, Adina, Daniel and Louis Luxenberg; Stephanie Johnson (spouse Steve) and Alexa Riley (spouse William).

Irene was the daughter of Harry and Lena Levinson. Her siblings were Marie Herbst and Hyman, Weldon Ezekiel, Nahum, Bert, and Jacob Levinson.
