Olive Leibowitz Siegel 62-year Levin worker

April 29, 1991

Services for Olive Leibowitz Siegel, a 62-year employee of the Levin Furniture Co., were held yesterday at the Sol Levinson and Bros. funeral home.

Mrs. Siegel, who would have turned 85 today, died of a heart attack Friday at her home in Northwest Baltimore. She worked until the day of her death at the furniture business on Menlo Drive.

After growing up in Federalsburg in Caroline County, the 18-year-old Olive Leibowitz met her future husband, Irving Siegel, in Richmond, Va. The Siegels moved to Baltimore three years later, and Mrs. Siegel learned the furniture trade at Levin.

As an interior designer and then executive director, she worked with three generations of the Levin family. She eventually served her first customer's children and grandchildren.

She was married to her husband for 48 years, until his death, and was a member of Chizuk Amuno Congregation in Baltimore. Her life centered around her work and family, her daughter said.

She is survived by her daughter, Ruth Schnitzer of Baltimore; a sister, Celia Goldman of Baltimore; a brother, Benjamin Leibowitz of Baltimore; four grandchildren; and two great-granddaughters.
