We learned with deep sorrow about the passing of well-known philanthropist and community activist Louise Manoogian Simone. The Armenian Nation lost a dedicated servant who remained true to her family’s legacy and lived and worked with the understanding of serving the Armenian people and the homeland.
Her presidency at the AGBU coincided with Armenia’s independence. Manoogian Simone advanced Armenia-centric projects, bridged the Diaspora and the Homeland and established the AGBU headquarters in Armenia.
We offer our heartfelt condolences to Louise Manoogian Simone’s family and relatives, as well as to the members and directors of the Armenian General Benevolent Union on this great loss.
