Monireh Allahverdizadeh, 96, of California, MD passed away on March 3, 2019 at her residence. She was born on September 1, 1922 in Quochan, Iran to the late Hussain and Zahra Allahverdizadeh. She spent most of her adult life in Mashad, Iran working as an office manager. As an Iranian Bahai and a long serving member of Spiritual Assembly of Bahai's of Mashad, she was persecuted by the Iranian government and had to go into hiding for over a year before fleeing to Pakistan in 1984. After an extended stay in Pakistan and with help from various refugee support organizations, she was able to travel to Vienna, Austria where she resided for several months. In 1986, she was finally able to come to the United States where she was united with her sister, Dr. F. Allahverdizadeh.
Ms. Allahverdizadeh moved to Saint Mary's County, MD in 1996 to be near her extended family. She was a member of the American Bahai Community and served in the local spiritual assembly of the Bahai's of St. Mary's County. Ms. Allahverdizah is survived by her sisters: Rizan and Farideh; and many extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, her brother, and four sisters.
A Graveside service will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Charles Memorial Gardens, Leonardtown, MD. Arrangements by the Brinsfield Funeral Home, P.A.
