Rosie Lee Levon was born on April 16, 1938 in Schlater, Mississippi and was raised by her mother and father Susie Mae and Essie Fifer. Her siblings included: Reamus T. Fifer, Jessie Fifer, Essie Fifer, Christine Frazier, and Aberdeen Grover. Rosie is preceded in death by both her mother and father, sister Christine and brother Jessie.
Rosie professed her faith in Christ early in life and rededicated her life to Christ and was baptized with her husband at home.
Rosie spent her younger years in Mississippi before she moved to Chicago to start a better life. She lived with her cousin’s family (Mozella) while she worked in housekeeping. It was shortly thereafter that she met the love of her life Judge “Jerry” Levon. They married in 1963 and was blessed with eight beautiful children (four girls and four boys). She also was a second mother to Jerry’s lovely daughter Sheila.
Rosie spent the latter part of her life working as a homemaker caring for all of her children and was a mother figure to their friends. She made sure that she did everything with a loving heart. Even when she was cooking her soul food holiday meals (including her always loved sweet potato pie), she was available to give advice, hugs, and kisses to all of her family members.
Rosie was the matriarch of the Levon Family. She was the glue that kept everyone together and did all of this with “LOVE”.
Rosie transitioned to be with the Lord on the evening of March 3, 2021 at Loyola Hospital.
