From Trish Varney, 1/23/2014:
"Mom's [Marilyn Bender] birth and death dates are Aug. 16, 1936-July 25th, 1989. Josephine kept her married name of Lynn. Grandpa Joel changed their last name in the 1940s to Lynn because Levin was a Jewish name and it was during WW II. I do believe it was legal but I have no way of knowing that. It may have been done in Chicago because that is where they lived when the kids were young. Also, Joel was adopted. I will try and get the birth and death info for you. And about Carl from Teresa or Carl Jr."
