    Biography Long links with city life
    Maud Rosenthal, who died on December 18, was the mother of television presenter Jim Rosenthal and had long connections with Oxford.
    Widow of Albi Rosenthal, she passed away peacefully at her home in Boars Hill, four months short of her 99th birthday.

    Her late father was the scholar Dr Oscar Levy, who edited the first complete English edition of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's works.

    Mrs Rosenthal and her husband relocated to Oxford with their antiquarian book-selling business, A Rosenthal - which still exists - to Oxford from London following the Blitz, eventually moving to Half Acre, in Boars Hill.

    While Mr Rosenthal divided his time between Oxford and London, Mrs Rosenthal focused on local interests, helping with fundraising activities at Magdalen College School, where Jim excelled on the sports field, helped with the growth and publicising of the Oxford Subscription Concerts and for the Oxford University Orchestra, of which her husband was a member.

    Mrs Rosenthal also served on the committee of the Churchill Memorial Concerts, held annually at Blenheim Palace, and also found time to support local Liberal Party activities.

    From the 1970s, Mrs Rosenthal's greatest wish was that the inhabitants of Boars Hill should get to know each other better. She co-founded the Boars Hill Association, which still thrives, and hosted numerous cultural events at the family home and, as secretary, oversaw the production of most of the association's newsletters.

    She presided over the last lecture at Half Acre, on Handel's London, on November 25. Having served on the residents' committee from its inception, she was latterly elected an honorary member. Mrs Rosenthal also had a long involvement with the Oxford Preservation Trust, going back over 25 years, which led to her appointment as patron of the Boars Hill committee in May 2006.

    Since her husband's death in August 2004, Mrs Rosenthal continued to travel to the Continent regularly, particularly to the South of France and Switzerland.
    She is survived by three of her four children.
