[Jean Levy]

My Dad Max Taitel wrote the following: ""Jennie (Max's sister also known as Jean) married Maurice Levy in March of 1942, and they lived in an apartment on Seaver St. in Roxbury , Mass. -- but her life ended tragically when she died eight months later in the terrible Coconut Grove Fire in Boston in November of 1942.  They had planned a night at this popular night club to celebrate Max's graduation from Officer's Candidate School.  Max's leave was cancelled at the last minute and they decided to celebrate anyway, which turned out to be a fatal decision.
