Rosalind Levering St. Paul's headmistress

September 26, 1990

Services for Rosalind R. Levering, who was the first headmistress of the St. Paul's School for Girls in Brooklandville, will be held at 11 a.m. today at University Baptist Church, North Charles Street and Greenway.

Mrs. Levering, who was 84, died Friday of a heart attack in Camden, Maine, after being injured in an automobile accident a week earlier. She lived in the Ambassador Apartments in the winter and in Thomaston, Maine, in the summer.

In 1966 when Mrs. Levering retired as headmistress, William Reed, then chairman of the board, said the school would always be grateful because she established "the unique quality of the school and one we hope it will never lose."

She became headmistress at St. Paul's when it opened in 1959 after serving on the faculty of the Bryn Mawr School for 30 years. An English teacher, she also had headed the middle school at Bryn Mawr.

Born in Wilmington, Ohio, but reared in Baltimore, the former Rosalind Robinson was a graduate of Bryn Mawr and of Wellesley College. She did graduate work at Goucher College and the Johns Hopkins University.

A Sunday school teacher for many years at University Baptist Church, where she also served as a deacon, she wrote a published history entitled "Baltimore Baptists."

Her husband, Wilson K. Levering Jr., a retired lawyer, died in 1987.

She is survived by a son, Wilson K. Levering III of Westminster; three daughters, Tacy French of Thomaston, Linda Luste of Toronto and Jessie Fike of Somerset, Pa.; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
