Mary Levengood, foster mother, ‘Santa’s helper’
Mary Elizabeth Levengood, of Dagsboro, passed away at home in the care of her family Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2012.
Born on Aug. 24, 1950 in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late George and Gertrude Pierce Balser. She lived in Ephrata until moving to Delaware 16 years ago.
She was a wonderful woman who dedicated herself to children. Her life was children, children, children — her own, her grandkids and the 175 foster children she helped to raise in her career with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a foster mother. She loved the beach, going out in the boat but most of all was devoted to her family. They called her "Santa’s helper."
She is survived by her husband: Jesse Allen Levengood; and her own children: Laura, Tracy, Joe, Pamela, Edna, J.R. and Jessie Jr. as well as the many foster kids and foster grandkids she helped raise over the years.; 11 grandchildren of her own; and siblings: George and William "Dennis" Balser; and Sandra Wentzell, Teresa Deemer and Marian Rebecca Ramey. She also leaves many extended family members and many, many friends.
A memorial service and celebration of her life was held at Dagsboro Church of God, on Route 113, Dagsboro, Del., Sept. 8. Pastor Kim Tephabock will officiated. Interment arrangements were private.
Electronic condolences may be given at watsonfh.com. Watson Funeral Home, Millsboro, Del., handled the arrangements.
