INDIANA, PA. — LEVENTRY – Mary Louise, 90, Indiana, died peacefully on Thanksgiving, Nov. 28, 2013, at St. Andrew’s Village surrounded by her loving family. A native of Johnstown, Mrs. Leventry was born Oct. 21, 1923, and graduated from Johnstown High School. She also took courses at Cambria-Rowe Business College and worked as a business manager at Heck’s Grocery Store in Moxham. She was the daughter of Charles E and Mabel L (Park) Berkey. She was blessed with an abundance of artistic talent, which was exemplified in everything she did. At Christmas, every present was hand wrapped and decorated with homemade bows that transformed each gift into a work of art. At Easter, she created a wide variety of handicapped chocolates that were boxed and given as gifts to family members and relatives. She also was a gourmet cook who learned to create authentic German cuisine from Chef Schmeider at the Colonial Inn in Indiana. In the fall, she organized family reunions at Seven Springs Resort, where everyone gathered to enjoy the autumn foliage and Steelers’ games. She especially relished vacationing with her family at the Jersey and Maryland shores and fell in love with Victorian Cape May later in life. In retirement, she and her husband moved to Ephrata, Pa., to experience the warmth and beauty of the Amish country and be near to her children and grandchildren. She loved to spend Christmas at Hershey and greatly enjoyed the splendor of the decorations as her grandchildren frolicked around the amusement park. Preceded in death by her parents; husband, William J.; and sisters, Betty Ripple and Lois Johnson. Survived by children, Jay W., married to the former Diana Fisanich, Iowa City, Iowa; Timothy D., Brea, Calif.; Patricia A., married to Denny Hilliard, Indiana, Pa.; Jeffrey C., married to the former Lisa Staskel, Yardley, Pa.; and Cynthia J. Crouse, Coatesville, Pa.; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren; also her brother, Dean, Little River, S.C.
