In memory of
Harriet Laub Levine
LAUB LEVINE, Harriet Harriet Ruth Laub Levine, age 91, died on Saturday, February 13, 2021, following a brief battle with leukemia. She was born May 16, 1929, in Brooklyn, New York, to the late Emanuel and Sophie (Vigdor) Laub. On June 15, 1950, she was joyously united in marriage to Arthur H. Levine, M.D. in Montreal. They met on a blind date that culminated in a marriage proposal that very night, as they both decided they would never meet anyone else they could love as much. She resided in Montreal and raised three children while supporting her husband's medical career. She received a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Anthropology while attending Sir George Williams University in Montreal along with her eldest daughter, and then attended McGill University in Montreal along with her son, where she obtained a Masters in Library Science. In 1978, Arthur and Harriet relocated to Dallas. She worked as a reference librarian for the City of Irving for many years. Harriet was an avid learner and voracious reader her entire life. Harriet and Arthur became food and wine experts as part of their love story. They were on a first name basis with almost every fine chef, restaurateur, and wine merchant in North Texas. They traveled all over the world, and especially loved their visits to the California wine country and made many life-long friends along the way. They were lovers and supporters of all the arts and regulars at the Dallas Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Dallas Symphony, Nasher Museum, Dallas Museum of Art, and many other institutions. After Arthur's passing, Harriet continued to attend and support these institutions. Harriet was a member of Temple Emanu-El for many years and contributed generously to many charitable organizations. She was also a proud member of the American Institute of Wine & Food. Harriet is survived by her son and his wife, Ed and Jamie Levine, Coppell, TX; daughter and her husband, Robin and Jeffery Harrop, Moline, IL; her sister Carol Needleman of Milford, PA; son-in-law Stuart Adler; five grandchildren, Robert Adler, Cameron and Amanda Harrop, and Lauren and Alex Levine. In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter Ellen Adler. Harriet Levine lived an excellent 91-year life filled with joy and discovery, but in her last few weeks she was looking forward to joining Arthur, who she had missed every day for the last ten years. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no funeral services. Please feel free to make donations to the American Cancer Society, North Texas Food Bank, or charity of your choice, and if inclined, raise a glass of your favorite wine in a farewell toast. She would have liked that.
