ROWHANI-REZVANI, Maryam - Daughter of Mirza Aga Jan Farsigou and Nane Jan, both profound believers in the then nascent Baha'i faith. Maryam was born in 1913 in Hamadan, Iran, and passed on, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, on April 12, 2008, surrounded by her loving friends and family. Maryam was married to Mousah Rowhani in 1932. She is survived by her daughters, Mrs. Margaret Ram and Rouhi Vladi, both residing in Canada; as well as her sons, Dr. Houshang Rowhani and Dr. Behrouz Rowhani, both in Vienna, Austria; her grandchildren, Mrs. Neda Habibi, Ottawa; Mrs. Shiva Yan, China; Vargha Ram, Ottawa; Dr. Marcel Rowhani, Vienna; Pouneh Natalie Vladi, Munich, Germany; also has five great-grandchildren, Sherwin, Charlene, Amilia, Anisa and Audrey. Maryam Rowhani was a steadfast believer in the Baha'i faith, the second generation in her family of believers in the principle of Bah‡'u'll‡h: "The earth is but one country and mankind its citizens". Maryam was a brave, courageous,
hardworking, knowledgeable and liberated woman, with a heart of gold; gracious, generous, humble and selfless; always ready to sacrifice her needs for those of her children, and to serve her faith and community. She was a true humanitarian, living her life with utmost dignity and integrity. She faced her many challenges with courage, humour and faith. Maryam worked as a chartered accountant for 44 years in Iran, at a time when women did not customarily hold positions of high responsibility. A true handmaiden of God, Maryam will be greatly missed and remembered in our hearts with gratitude, love and affection. We are forever proud of her and thankful for having had her in our lives. The family thanks those involved in her care in the last period of her earthly life, friends and caregivers who came from diverse backgrounds and beliefs. A memorial and prayer service in honour of her memory will be held in Atlantic Funeral Home, 771 Main St., Dartmouth, at 11 a.m. on Saturday,
April 19. Interment will follow at the same address. All in attendance will be welcome at the reception immediately after. Maryam Rowhani and many of her immediate family had to leave Iran because of the persecution of the Baha'i faith minority by the Iranian government, a persecution that systematically continues to this day. In lieu of flowers, the family requests your prayers for freedom of worship for all Baha'i children, women and men in Iran, who are suffering the burden of persecution.
