Eliza Rosina Levett (1854–1919)

Mrs. George Levett, almost a life-long resident of the district, passed away at her home, Wombat Road, Young, at 11 a.m. on Saturday. She had been ill for some time, but her health had improved. On Friday, however, she became very ill, and died about 24 hours later. Deceased, who was 65 years of age, was highly respected and many of her neighbors can recall the kindly deeds she performed. She was a daughter of the late John Rhodes, and was born at Sofala, coming to Young when a girl. She was married here to Mr. George Levett (whom we regret to say is not enjoying good health), and he, with a grown up family of three sons and two daughters, are left to mourn. The family comprises Mrs. A. Adlam (Tumut), Miss Ettie Levett (Young) Messrs George (Wombat Road), John Levett (Young) and Fred (who arrived home from the war a few days before his mother's death). Mrs. D. Black (Young) and Mrs. Pringle (Caragabal) are sisters, whilst Mr. A. Rhodes (Spring Creek) is a brother. It is a strange coincidence that deceased's sister (Mrs. O. W. Cartwright) died a few hours before her son's homecoming from the war. The funeral on Sunday was very largely attended, the remains being laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the Young cemetery, Rev. S. A. T. Champion officiating at the grave. Patterson Bros. carried out the mortuary arrangements.
