Mollie (nee Feder) Lewitter (Mrs. Ed Lewitter),

(November 30, 1925 - April 5, 2013)

         Mollie Lewitter passed away peacefully on April 5, 2013 at her Petaluma residence at the age of 87 years. Devoted wife of the late Ed Lewitter. Loving mother of Marc Lewitter of Healdsburg, Susan Koehler of San Francisco, and Alan Lewitter of Petaluma. Dear mother-in-law of Carl Koehler and Betsi Lewitter. Cherished grandmother of Ryan (Sierra) Lewitter, Allison (Alfonso) Koehler-Lopez, and Michael Koehler. Special great-grandmother of Michael Steven Lopez. Dear sister of Pearl Cutler of Fairfield and the late Adele Rosen. She was a loving aunt to Ellen, Alex, Wendy, Eileen, and Ruth.

         Mollie was born in New Jersey, married her childhood sweetheart and moved to Petaluma in 1951. Her work career included Goldstein's Costume Co. in San Francisco, office manager for her husband in Cotati, City of Windsor Water Department and the City of Petaluma Water Department for 20 years. She graduated from Sonoma State University with honors in the 1980s. She was a student at the Life Long Learning Center at SSU, was an avid knitter and donated hundreds of hats to chemotherapy patients and friends.

         She enjoyed her membership (#111) at the Redwood Health Club and played poker with the same friends for over 50 years. Her motto was, to do at least one nice thing for someone everyday. A special thanks to Leticia Rivas, her loving caregiver and Bella, her canine companion who comforted her during her final time.

Friends and family are invited to a Graveside Committal on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at the B'nai Israel Cemetery, 430 Magnolia Avenue, Petaluma. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Wilmar Volunteer Fire Dept. or Hospice of Petaluma in her memory.
