Janice Levin Lichtenstein, Ed.D.

Janice Levin Lichtenstein, Ed.D., 76, of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, entered blessed memory on Saturday, December 30, 2023. Her funeral service will be held Tuesday, January 2, 2024, in the J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Downtown Chapel, 232 Calhoun Street at 2:00 p.m.  Interment will follow in Emanu-El Cemetery (Maryville); Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc.  Downtown Chapel.
Janice was born July 16, 1947, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of the late Saul Levin and Eleanor Lissy Levin.  A lifelong student, Janice completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, held multiple degrees from Temple University, The Citadel, and completed her doctoral training at the University of South Carolina. 

Janice, or “Dr. Jan” as her most recent students knew her, served families and students with disabilities for over 56 years as an education specialist in Philadelphia, PA, Davidson County, TN, and Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley Counties, SC.  Dr. Jan led a team serving families and students with vision, orthopedic, and multiple impairments in the Tri-County area.  Janice was a member of Synagogue Emanu-El.

Education wasn’t the sole focus in Dr. Jan’s life as she was a voracious collector of antiquities and arts of all mediums.  She absorbed inspiration from the beauty of the Western North Carolina mountains, spending time there each summer for many decades.  Many creative pursuits captured Jan’s heart including watercolor, knitting, fashion, and jewelry.  Her affection for jewelry, particularly intricate lampwork beads, highlighted her exuberance of spirit and developed into a passion for constructing bold and vibrant pieces which earned the respect of artists worldwide.
She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Dr. Leonard Lichtenstein of Mt. Pleasant, SC; daughter, Melanie Joy Lichtenstein, Ph.D. of Beaufort, SC; two sons, Bruce Robert Lichtenstein, Ph.D. of Portsmouth, England, Daniel Eric Lichtenstein (Melyssa) of Asheville, NC; godson, Stephen Wood of Columbia, SC; and sister, Arlene Goldberg of Philadelphia, PA and all the students for whom she tirelessly advocated.
Memorials may be made to: MUSC General Internal Medicine Fund for the Lichtenstein Foundation.
