Au revoir Madame Renée Lowther

In memory of Renée Lowther, the Alliance Française of Cincinnati sends condolences to her three children Christine, Roxanne and Marc. The support she gave to Alliance Française over sixty years is simply unfathomable. She will be missed by the many students who learned French with her, and by the Francophone community of the Tri-state. Her souvenir will last, and her passion for life will continue to inspire us all.

A scholarship fund has been established in Renée’s name. Send your donation by check to:
