Sona Yerganian passed away on May 5, 2021, at her home. A Memorial Service and Celebration of Her Life will be held at the First Armenian Church, 380 Concord Ave, Belmont, MA 02478 on May 7, 2022 at 11:00 am.
Sona (Arzomanian) A. Yerganian peacefully went to her eternal rest at the age of 96 on May 5, 2021, comfortably in her home and surrounded by her family. Born at Hart Hospital in Boston, Sona was the only child of Asadour and Zumroohee (Moskofian) Arzomanian. She grew up in Roslindale then moved to a home in West Roxbury in 1945, where she raised her family. Sona was devoted to her loving husband for 69 years, Dr. George Yerganian, who preceded her in death two years ago. After graduating from the New England Conservatory, she became an accomplished Concert Pianist. Sona met George, when he attended her performance at the International Institute. They were engaged a month later on Valentine’s Day. She was a lifelong member of the Armenian Women’s Welfare Assoc., and contributed to both the Music, Arts, and Spiritual communities. Sona had an abundance of love to give, and would say, “To love children is the most rewarding thing a person can do.” She said her greatest achievement was raising her children, treasuring her “cherubs” Athena Yerganian of Boston and Arra Yerganian and his wife Taline of San Jose, CA. She was the Proud Nana to her grandchildren Alec, Talar, and Shant.
