The Delaware County Daily Times which is one of the local suburban papers has a little column called "Other Times". In it they list news items from that dates paper 100, 75, 50, 25, & 10 years ago. The 12/31/06 paper had as an item...10 Years ago-1996 Sweetwater Farm, an historic inn that has been a bed and breakfast since 1983, has new owners. Ric Hovesian and Grace LeVine bought the property from Michael Gretz and Jonathan Propper.

It caught my eye so I thought I would share it. Hope everyone had a good New Year.

Grace Levine demystified

Grace did NOT graduate from college, never had a real job. Married Packer in the early 80s. Divorced HIM. Bought the B&B in PA. Packer then married Grace's cousin, Meg Davis,daughter of Peggy Kelly, Grace Kellys' sister. Meg Davis left HER husband, Richard Roe, to marry Packer. Grace Levine never had any children. Her brother, Chris, married Vickie McNeill, the Tylenol queen. They have a daughter, Kelly Levine. Grace Levine died from cancer...no real mystery there.

I think Chris & Vickie also have a son named Christopher.

Realreality has the facts wrong. Packer was married to Meg, who is also Princess Grace's niece, since I believe 1964 for 29 yrs so it could not have been the same Packer who married Grace Levine.

Not true! Meg married Roe first and had three sons with him. Grace Levine married Packer first, divorced him & he married Meg in 1992 or so...I can't remember. Levine never married again.

Clarity

Senior Bachelor
This is Meg's FIRST hubby. They were married in 1964, had three boys.
They divorced in 1991.
Meg then married Packer, who is in the financial arena. They live in Blue Bell, PA, where Meg is active playing golf.



This is Meg:

Does anyone happen to know what Grace Levine Packer's birthdate was? I think it was in May 1956 because Lizanne was pregnant with her and couldn't attend the Royal Wedding in Monaco. Does anyone know the date? - Roberta Ann

I read that Grace Levine was 43 years old when she died of cancer in October 1999. Princess Alexandra of Hanover was only @4 months old when Grace died. If we look back to that time, maybe we can find some photos of Princess Caroline at the funeral or any other information. What a bittersweet time for her, enjoying her baby and new marriage and mourning the loss of her closest cousin. So many tragedies have hit her. No wonder she can't stop smoking.

I think Grace Levine's birthdate was May 5th 1956. It was mentioned in the book "Once upon a Time" by J. Randy Taborelli. I am not positive if that was the correct date though.

I think I have read most of this and I can say definetively that Grace Levine married william packer in the early eightys (1984-5) they divorced and bill packer lived with meg roe for a time.

I knew grace from 1982 till about 1995 and during that time worked for bill packer while they lived in gladwyne behind the pcc golf club

I had met prince albert, pricess caroline and princess stephaine and most of theri children while they were visiting grace at 1077 sentry lane.

Grace was the NICEST person I had EVER met.

Luzanne knows me as Dave the Cave!

she was also the most endearing and charming woman I have ever met and it was passed along to grace.

I am JUST learning today that grace had passed away (almost ten years later) and I am still stunned.

Even though my service for the packers had ended we were still great friends.

Grace married Billy after a helicopter ride to the Waldorf Astoria (where he proposed) one night after leaving the Packer family mansion in Broad Axe PA.

The mansion was sold quite a few years back and as I last recall W.B. PAcker Sr bought the house in Gladwyne after Grace and Billys divorce.

I am so stunned even though it had been years since I last saw grace I'm feeling great dispair over losing such a good friend especially to cancer.

Rest in peace Grace you will always be my friend!

Does anyoone know where she was laid to rest?

On page 3 of this post is Grace Levin's obituary. It says there was a memorial service for her in Berwyn Pa but no mention of where she was buried.

I don't remember seeing any photos of the Kelly relations at Stefano's funeral in 1990. Undoubtedly they were there. Grace Levine passed away in 1999. She was the maid of honor at Princess Caroline's first marriage to Philippe Junot. Since the two cousins were so close, I would be surprised if Grace Levine did not attend Stefano's funeral.

Photos of Grace Levine at Princess Caroline and Philippe Junot's wedding. She is right above Princess Caroline, wearing a large hat. http://i599.photobucket.com/albums/t...Picture524.jpg

Grace Levine is standing behind the bride and groom. http://i599.photobucket.com/albums/t...Picture517.jpg

In these photos, she is wearing a blue dress and is behind Princess Caroline http://i599.photobucket.com/albums/t...notwalking.jpg http://i599.photobucket.com/albums/t...notfront-1.jpg

Princess Grace is wearing pink, Princess Caroline is in black, Prince Albert is seated next to Grace Levine.

This is an August 2009 article published in "Main Line Today". It explains that Chris Le Vine and his wife own Sweetwater Farms. When Grace Levine died, she bequeathed the B & B to her brother in her will.

Sweet Getaway - Main Line Today - August 2009 - Philadelphia, PA

Sweetwater Farm, Brandywine Valley Bed & Breakfast

Sweetwater Farm, Brandywine Valley Bed and Breakfast
50 Sweetwater Rd
Glen Mills, PA 19342-1709

If you Google Sweetwater Farm PA the phone number is available also.

"Sweetwater Farm is a 1734 manor home on a 50-acre farm located in the heart of the scenic Brandywine Valley just outside of Philadelphia. It is a historic property that was part of an original land grant from William Penn.

Yes that Gal- Grace Levine who was Caro's bridesmaid was beautiful and walked across the Monaco streets that they had rained rice upon with her and Junot in pics I remember.
Very sad to hear that she died.
