CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
Cincinnati icon and philanthropist Louise Nippert passed away in her home Monday morning.
Nippert gave generously and sometimes anonymously to Music Hall and other Cincinnati charities.
"We wouldn't have a world class orchestra in Cincinnati without Mrs. Nippert," says Trey Devey, the president of the Cincinnati Symphony Pops Orchestra.
"She was here virtually at every one of our performances, she sat in box nine."
A lover of the arts, Mrs. Nippert sang with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1957.
More than 50 years later in 2009, Nippert donated $85 million to establish the Musical Arts Fund which allowed CSO, the Cincinnati Ballet and Cincinnati Opera the opportunity to really work together within the walls of Music Hall.
The Nipperts were more than just fans of the fine arts.
Her husband, Louis, owned the Cincinnati Reds during the 'Big Red Machine' era. They also annually donated to the YMCA and are the namesake of the Gamble-Nippert YMCA on the West Side.
"They've given scholarship money for families to be able to access this facility who might not be able to afford to do so," says Trish Kitchell, executive director of Gamble-Nippert YMCA.
Louis died in 1992, he was an heir of James Gamble, a founder of Procter & Gamble.
"Our city would just thrive more and more everyday with hearts like the Nippert family and the heart that Louise Nippert had," says Kitchell.
Louise was 100 years old.

It is difficult to put into words what Mrs. Nippert meant to the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra, the important artistic partners with whom we collaborate, and of course the community this great Orchestra serves.More>>
