It is with a heavy heart that Florida Armenians informs our readers about the passing of Rose Hagopian Reynolds, a founding member of the Boca Raton Armenian American community. Rose passed away peacefully at the age of 94 on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
Everybody knew her and loved like she was a member of their own family. When you think about how small the South Florida Armenian Community was 30-40 years ago (when most people first met her), we loved her because she is a part of our family, now and forever. We will always remember her gigantic smile, and the way her presence warmed the room. She will be greatly missed.
We also offer our sincere condolences to Rose’s niece and nephew, Diane Bazikian and Jack Bazikian. We share your pain and grieve with you.
A funeral service will be held privately for immediate family members only. A requiem service for Rose Hagopian Reynolds will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at St. David Armenian Church in Boca Raton.
In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Rose Hagopian Reynolds, may be made to St. David Armenian Church.
On Wednesday, April 24th, St. Hagop Armenian Church of Pinellas Park, FL hosted a commemoration of the 104th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
