Ivy J. Levans, 83, of Burlington, passed away Friday, July 24, 2020 at her daughter’s home in Pleasant Prairie.

Ivy was born in Burlington on May 22, 1937 to Henry and Doris (nee Barlament) Brown. Her early life was spent in Burlington, where she attended St. Mary’s High School. On July 25, 1959, she was united in marriage to Gerald “Jerry” Levans in Oakland, Calif. Following marriage, they resided in Burlington where they raised their family. In 2012, they moved to Memphis, Tenn. After Jerry’s death on April 18, 2012, Ivy returned to Wisconsin to live with her daughter.

In her younger years, Ivy worked as a waitress at the Coffee Cup Restaurant in Burlington. After marriage, she became a homemaker. She was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church and enjoyed listening to country music, especially Ernie Tubbs, George Jones and Elvis. She was an avid reader, always receiving the Standard Press regardless of where she lived. She loved playing bingo and trying her luck with scratch-off lottery tickets. She was a woman of faith and a devoted wife and mother to her kids and grandkids.

Ivy is survived by her children, Lonnie (Debby) Levans, Ronald (Meridith) Levans, Carol (Joseph) Connelly and Kellie Levans; grandchildren, Courtnie Schmidt, Allysa (Corbin) Hobby, Matthew Levans, Eric Levans and Samuel Connelly; great-grandchildren, Nevaeh Silverman and Blake Gruber; and siblings, James Brown, David (Joanne) Brown and Debbie (Bill) Fiegel.
