Roberta Danza (age 74), of Stratford, Connecticut and New York City passed away peacefully in her sleep, after a heroic three-year battle with pancreatic cancer, surrounded by her family, on the morning of Saturday, November 4, 2017. Born in Brooklyn, New York to Sylvia and Robert Danza, she received an RN from St. Francis Nursing School in Trenton, New Jersey, a BSN from Villanova University and an MSN from the Yale Graduate School of Nursing. She further received an APRN, and was active in that organization, as well as a Diploma from the prestigious Ackerman Family Institute and national Accreditation in EMDR for the treatment of those with PTSD, which she used to successfully treat those who were present at the World Trade Center and Sandy Hook Elementary School attacks. After two years as a psychotherapist at the Clifford Beers Child Center in New Haven, she was co-founder of the Psychotherapy Center for Child, Adults in Families in Milford, Connecticut, where she practiced psychotherapy for 30 years with her two partners, Dr. Pramila Nathan and Dr. Judy Sprotzer. She had an exceptional reputation for the compassionate and effective treatment of her patients and involved herself in multiple charitable organizations. She is survived by her husband Jeremy Leven of 41 years (a Hollywood Screenwriter and Feature Film Director she appeared in three of his films); her three children, John Krokidas (also a screenwriter and film director), Stephanie Krokidas (an elementary school art teacher) and Joshua Leven (a software engineering manager and entrepreneur); her two step-children, Zoe Crowe (an Informational Technology Executive) and Zachary Leven (a writer and editor), and her four grandchildren, Ezra Crowe, Coco Shaw, Zane Thompson and Xavier Leven. MEMORIAL SERVICES will be Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Church of the Holy Assumption, 81 Center Road, Woodbridge, Connecticut. In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome contributions to further pancreatic cancer research at the Lustgarten Foundation, www.lustgarten.org, in the name of Roberta Danza. The joy of all our lives, she will be deeply missed.
