Obituary: Shirley Leviton

Jan. 4, 2019
The Leviton board member and wife of late CEO Harold Leviton leaves a rich legacy.

Shirley Leviton, Leviton Manufacturing board member and wife of the company’s former CEO, the late Harold Leviton, passed away, the company announced this morning.

Said the Leviton announcement, “To those many employees and people in the industry who came in contact with her sensed her compassion, elegance and intellect. An accomplished woman, she served numerous local and national organizations; including President of the National Council of Jewish Women, recipient of an Honorary Doctorate from Acadia University, and was also a Board Member of North Shore University Hospital.

“Her greatest loves were her family, daughters Patricia, Adrienne and Elizabeth, sons-in-law Stephen Sokolow, Donald Hendler and Andrew Kriegman, her 11 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren. She also showed great love and devotion to the Leviton Company and all of its employees. The family greatly appreciates the sympathies and condolences of the entire organization for their loss; they request no flowers. Any donations in Shirley's memory can be made to a charity of your own choosing.”
