Flegeltaub, Phoebe Florence (?–1917)

from Ballarat Star (Vic)

Advice was received in Ballarat yesterday that Mrs Phoebe Flegeltaub, relict of the late Wolf Flageltaub, formerly warehouseman, of Ballarat, had died at her residence, Fitzroy street, St. Kilda. The deceased lady was a native of Nottinghamshire, England, where in the year 1862 she was married to the late Mr W. Flegeltaub, with whom she came to Australia in 1867. In the following year Mr Flegeltaub, with his wife, settled in Ballarat and established the business with which his name has since been associated. The late Mrs Flegeltaub was of a most charitable disposition, and an active worker in connection with the Jewish Philanthropic Society and other charitable organisations. When she left this centre about ten years ago to take up her residence in the metropolis the poor lost a kind friend. She leaves a family of three sons Messrs Louis, Joseph and Hector — and four daughters, viz., Mrs Sydney Myer, of Melbourne; Mrs Sharman, of Auckland, N.Z.; Mrs Lionel Davies, of St. Kilda, and Miss Flegeltaub. Mrs Sharman (formerly Miss Juliet Flegeltaub) became well known by reason of her exceptional musical and dramatic talents, which were frequently devoted to aiding charitable objects in Ballarat. The funeral of the deceased lady will take place to-day at the Old Cemetery on the arrival of the morning train from Melbourne.
