She was born in Swisshelm Park, PA, on Dec. 3, 1920 and was a graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School. She also attended Duff’s Business College. Betty was a beloved mother to her two children and a devoted wife to her husband, always putting her family’s needs before her own. Her love was so apparent when she was in the presence of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She is survived by son, Jay Stockman (Linda) of Evansville, IN, daughter, Barbara Koontz (Dick) of Harrison City, PA; half-brothers, James Levens of Cambridge Springs, PA, and Edward Levens of Phoenix, AZ; grandson, Jeff Volker of Murrysville, PA; granddaughters, Jill Leonello (Joe) of Harrison City, PA, and Kristina O’Daniel (Phil) of Evansville, IN; great-grandchildren, Lea Volker, Dante, Giana, Bianca, Milania, and Joe Leonello; and several nieces and nephews, including Charlotte Ann Hollerich of Sheraden, PA; and longtime dear friend, Shirley Daum of Monroeville, PA. In addition to her late husband, Betty was preceded in death by mother, Charlotte Levens, who died when Betty was an infant; and father, Edward Levens. She was raised by now deceased grandparents Clara and William Levens of Swisshelm Park. She was also preceded in death by sister, Clara Williams; brothers, Edward and Kenneth Levens, veterans who died during World War II; and several nieces and nephews. A former resident of Swisshelm Park and Plum Borough, PA, Betty enjoyed more than 15 years of retirement in Barefoot Bay, FL, before returning to Monroeville. A Christian woman of great faith, she was a longtime member of Third Primitive Methodist Church of Swisshelm Park and Holiday Park Methodist Church in Plum Borough. In later years, she attended Monroeville United Methodist Church. Betty was a devout, lifelong Pirates, Steelers and Penguins fan.
