Who Is Nancy Reuben

Nancy Rebuen

Nancy Reuben was born in 1914, in Baghdad. She came to the UK in the 1950's and was married to David Sassoon Reuben. She is the second daughter to Aziza Nissan Jiddah and Solomon. Nancy Reuben was close to her three sisters.

Nancy Reuben was a very generous natured woman who kept a low profile. She was the matriarch of the family and was loved greatly by all her children and grandchildren who used to visit her regularly at her apartment in Kensington, London. She had an alert mind and was always very up to date with current affairs. She was also deeply committed to her Jewish heritage and read psalms every day from a small book she kept by her bedside.

It is most fitting that the memory of this truly special woman, who loved children so deeply and upheld Jewish values in all she did, be kept alive through the establishment of a Jewish school in her name.
