Rebbetzin Levovitz was born in Brisk to her parents, Rav Osher and Nechama Buchman Hy”d, and escaped the European inferno together with the Mir Yeshiva, eventually settling in New York.

Rebbetzin Levovitz is survived by her children, Rav Yeruchom Levovitz; Rav Nachman Levovitz, rosh yeshiva at Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim; Rav Chaim Ozer Levovitz, and Rebbetzin Rivka Rasha Goodman, wife of Rav Nissin Goodman, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Tiferes Elimelech, and by scores of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren who follow in her footsteps.
