In our obituary of today notice is given of the death of Mrs. Solomon Levy at her residence in Roxburgh street. Mrs. Levy came to the colony with her parents in the ship Birman in the year 1842. With her sister, Mrs. Edwin Jackson, she went to the Bay of Islands a short time after their arrival in Port Nicholson, and remained there some time. After her return to Wellington she was married to the late Solomon Levy, the ceremony being performed by the Rev. J. Woodward, Congregational minister. She and her husband then resided at Mount Cook for some years, and afterwards went into business on Lambton quay. The venture proved a successful one, and the business premises were afterwards disposed of to Hallenstein Bros. Mr. and Mrs. Levy then retired into private life, taking up their residence finally in Roxburgh street. Mrs Levy was a member of the Congregational Church, and took an active part in promoting the church's welfare, and her good work will be greatly missed by the congregation. At every bazaar or sale of work she was a large contributor, and she also assisted in person. Mr. Solomon Levy predeceased his wife by seventeen years. There are eight children surviving, five having died. There are also numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren
