Levita was united in marriage to Daniel Alfred Neugebauer on October 21, 1942 and to the union two sons and four daughters were born. Dan and Levita spent 54 years together loving and spoiling their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Together they enjoyed each other, whether it was family fun activities or working together in the hay fields. Their home was a gathering place for family and friends to enjoy time together and great meals.
Levita loved her family. She raised her children to be loving and forgiving of others. She always said if you can not do something or say something good, then don’t do or say anything. She enjoyed time with loved ones riding around on country roads and looking at the scenery. She enjoyed riding through fields and woods on the back of a four-wheeler. She loved fishing and riding in a boat. She always said she did not like to cook, but she was well known for being a great cook, especially for her peach cobbler and cinnamon rolls.
Levita was a member of Souls Harbor Church.
Preceding her in death were her parents; three brothers; three sisters; her husband, Dan; a daughter, Hazel Marie Wilson; and two granddaughters, Coni Rae Neugebauer and Gracie Michelle Wilson.
