Roselind (Rossi) Cohen (1859–1930)

from Hebrew Standard of Australasia

News reached Sydney by cable of the death in London on May 28 of Rossi [Rosalind], widow of Mr. Neville D. Cohen. Both Mr. and Mrs. Cohen were highly appreciated members of our local community, and it was a distinct loss when they left to take up their residence in England. Mrs. Cohen was a daughter of the late Hon. L. W. Levy M.L.C. The Neville and Rossi Cohen Memorial Prize given annually by the N.S.W. Board of Jewish Education will keep their memory, very deservedly, before the rising generation, as the work they did for the betterment of the community was of such a personal nature that it covered a wide field of valuable activity, and extended to many public non-sectarian institutions.
