Sander Levin and a Penn State Prof Tie the Knot

August 8, 2012

While most members were in the throes of the last dash to August recess, Rep. Sander Levin was on his way to the alter for the second time.

Eighty-year-old Levin, the top Ways and Means Committee Democrat, married Pamela Cole in a private ceremony in Ferndale, Mich., on July 21, thAP110718117762.jpge Detroit Free Press reports. Cole, 61, is a psychology professor at Penn State University.

The two then celebrated their marriage on Monday with family and friends, including Levin's brother Sen. Carl Levin, on Martha's Vineyard.

The two met met through Cole's work on a panel for the National Institutes of Health where she became friends with Levin's late wife Vicki. When Vicki died in 2008, Cole and Levin paired up to honor his wife of 50 years by creating an award fund in her name to benefit young professionals in child development. He and Cole, also a widow, bonded over their losses and common interests, Levin told the Free Press.

"I don't think it was something expected, but we had a lot of common interests and we both suffered severe loss," Levin said. "It was a combination of shared memories and shared love."
