116 Alex Livingston passed away 6/18/2016 in the home that he shared with his wife Amanda in Mill Valley without pain or struggle after a hard-fought two-year battle with Melanoma at the age of 29. Alex grew up in Scarsdale, NY. He had a BA from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from Harvard and was a talented writer and loved sports. He moved to San Francisco in 2009 when he met his wife. In June 2014 he was diagnosed with stage IV Melanoma just nine months after their October 2013 wedding. Alex was incredibly smart, wise beyond his years, and well-loved. His love of his family, friends were all inspiring. He was incredibly generous with his knowledge whether it was helping fellow Melanoma patients find new cutting edge treatments or helping friends start their own business. Alex is also survived by his mother Susan, father John, and brother Evan Livingston in New York. He also leaves behind his Marin County family mother-in-law, Nancy, father-in-law Pat, brother-in-law Kevin, and sister-in-law Mallory Burke. To honor his legacy, the Livingston family has started the Alex Livingston Scholarship Fund. Alex's dream in life was to own and operate his own summer camp - a direct result of his 16 years as a camper and counselor at Camp Lenox in Lee, MA. He also worked for Camp Lenox for two full years. This scholarship will benefit campers who are deserving, but unable to afford the tuition at Camp Lenox.

125 Although Dr. Lewis W. Gumerman spent a year in an iron lung after being afflicted with polio, he was able to return to school and receive his medical degree.
"It happened in 1955, when Dad was in his second year at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School," said his daughter, Meira Gumerman. "But for Dad, even the thought of not finishing medical school was never an option."
Dr. Gumerman, of Squirrel Hill, a radiologist and chairman of the Nuclear Medicine Department at UPMC Presbyterian hospital, Oakland, died of a heart attack on Tuesday, May 4, 2004, at his home. He was 69.
"My father, despite the fact that his legs were paralyzed, completed medical school in 1960," his daughter said. "Dad interned in nuclear radiology at the Albert Einstein Hospital in Philadelphia before coming to Pittsburgh in 1962."

A year later, he met Ruth Krast, a resident of New Wilmington, Del., at a wedding where her father, a rabbi, was officiating. They were married a short time later.
Ruth Gumerman, a private therapist, was active with Pittsburgh Action Against Rape. She died in 1997. Two years later, Dr. Gumerman married Myriam Kantz, a preschool teacher.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Dr. Gumerman was one of two children of Albert and Anna Gumerman. His father was employed as an accountant in the retail industry.
At age 16, Dr. Gumerman completed high school and entered the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his undergraduate degree.
Meira and her brother, Etan, said their father never complained or lost his faith. "As kids we were aware that Dad was using a wheelchair. He had such a positive attitude. The only thing my father regretted was not being able to dance or to hold someone close to him," his daughter said.
When he began to show symptoms of his polio, Dr. Gumerman retired in 1987 and enrolled in classes at the University of Pittsburgh and the Jewish Education Institute in Squirrel Hill.
As a member of both Beth Shalom and Dor Hadas congregations, Dr. Gumerman conducted study groups and classes on religion and the faith.
"I feel what pleased our family the most about our father's medical career were the comments from his patients. They considered him not only to be a talented doctor, but a kind, patient and sympathetic man," his daughter said.
Dr. Gumerman is survived by his wife, Myriam Kantz Gumerman; daughter, Meira Gumerman, of Squirrel Hill; son, Etan Gumerman and his wife, Julie, of San Jose, Calif.; three stepdaughters, Karen Kantz, of Squirrel Hill, and Lisa and Rachel Kantz, both of Israel; and two grandchildren, Noam and Jayden Gumerman.
He was predeceased by a sister, Estelle Bleiman.
Friends may meet at noon today at Ralph Schugar Chapel Inc., 5509 Centre Ave., Shadyside, and then proceed to Homewood Cemetery, Squirrel Hill, for graveside services at 1 p.m.

147 Baltimore's 'Grandma Moses'

David Herz Special to the Jewish Times
JULY 09, 2004

After retiring from the travel business 19 years ago, Sylvia Levin was looking for something to occupy her time. She began painting and found that she received "great pleasure from it." She often gave her finished pieces to friends and family members who told her how much they enjoyed her work, but she thought "they were just being polite."

"People would tell me that my paintings were good, but I didn't believe them," says Mrs. Levin, 90. "Painting was a hobby. I never thought I would sell them. It gave me a lot of time doing something I enjoyed, and I could see results."

Then, a friend suggested that she have a showing. At first, Mrs. Levin says she didn't give it much thought, but then she decided to take a chance. Her sons invited about 30 people over to her Park Heights apartment in June 2003, and Mrs. Levin sold eight paintings, earning more than $1,000.

"I couldn't believe it," she says. "I was very pleasantly surprised at how many paintings were sold at that showing."

Mrs. Levin planned to have a second show earlier this year, but it was canceled due to her health troubles. But even without another show, Mrs. Levin has continued to sell paintings from her home/art studio, earning somewhat of a reputation as a local "Grandma Moses."

One look at Mrs. Levin's apartment indicates that she is no ordinary senior citizen. Its vibrant colors — a lime green border adorning the entrance walls, and the living room painted a deep orange — match the colorful personality of this great-grandmother. Artifacts collected from her many trips all over the world are also displayed throughout her home.

Mrs. Levin says her painting style is highly influenced by the late 19th-century Impressionist movement. She says her first works were oils, but she now paints with acrylics, mostly for practical purposes.

"Acrylics are better for painting in an apartment," she says. "They dry quicker and are easier to clean and they don't smell."

Most of the paintings currently displayed in her apartment are of women or of nature scenes. Mrs. Levin uses a contrast of colors, often employing dark colors around a painting's subject. She says that she often paints something that she notices in a photograph, and then adds her own creative interpretation.

Mrs. Levin's life experiences from her years leading travel groups around the world are evident in her paintings as well. Many have Far East influences, one of the areas that she says she enjoyed visiting the most.

She says she had painted only once in her life before her retirement. In 1967, when her mother was dying, Mrs. Levin suddenly painted a portrait of her soon- to-be daughter in-law, marrying her son, Dr. Michael Levin, from the couple's engagement announcement photo.

"I decided it would be something good for me to do," says Mrs. Levin, a Har Sinai congregant. "I used it as therapy for myself."

A mother of three, Mrs. Levin, who also has nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, was born and raised in Baltimore. She has always been interested in the arts. As a child, she hoped to be a ballet dancer and took classes. But Mrs. Levin says she was forced to give up ballet at the age of 12 when rheumatic fever confined her to bed for a year.

Mrs. Levin never really had any formal training in painting. She took two classes at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Baltimore, and another class recently in Florida. Her late husband, Harold, was also an accomplished painter. She says her son, Stanley, believes there must a hidden talent within the family and has recently started to paint. He and his daughter are now taking lessons from Mrs. Levin.

Edith Green, a nurse who cares for Mrs. Levin, has purchased two of her paintings. One was a nature scene that Mrs. Green says reminded her of her home in Virginia. While she was shocked that Mrs. Levin had very little training in art, Mrs. Green says she wasn't surprised by Mrs. Levin's talent.

"It's amazing the things she does," Mrs. Green says. "I tell her all the time that she is just a big gift."

Mrs. Levin, former president of the Jewish women's group Miriam Lodge KSB, says she has never done any Jewish-themed work. "I saw so much in Israel that it would be too difficult to show what I saw," she says. "It just doesn't seem that I could do it, that I could depict it the way it should be."

Mrs. Levin says she harbors no regrets about beginning her craft so late in life. "I did other things," she says. "I had years of dancing, which I loved, and the time that I spent working with philanthropic groups took a lot of work. I wouldn't have had time to do anything else. Each thing had its own time."

And like many artists, Mrs. Levin is her own toughest critic. "I finish a canvas, I let it stand," she says. "I think it's done when I walk away, but it isn't done. Maybe 10 minutes or 10 days later, I see errors, so they will stand there for a while before I finish them and sign them."

Mrs. Levin says she hopes to continue painting for many more years.

"You get better as you get older, if you enjoy what you do," she says. "I will paint as long as I physically can."
