"We join with the entire community in remembering and honoring the life of Louise Dieterle Nippert. 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. Her commitment and generosity were unparalleled, and her remarkable impact will be felt for generations to come," said the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra in a statement.

The Cincinnati Reds offer condolences to the family and family of Louise Nippert.

"The Nippert family has been a proud steward of this great franchise for decades, and its influence is woven into the fabric of our long and storied history. No person loved the Cincinnati Reds more than Mrs. Nippert, and her players loved her for her devotion to the family atmosphere she fostered within the organization. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time," said Reds President and Chief Executive Officer Bob Castellini.

Louis and Louise Nippert joined 12 other Cincinnati investors to buy the Reds in 1966.

"I am saddened at the passing of Louise Dieterle Nippert. She was a precious gem in the Cincinnati community who lived a long and rich life filled with a deep passion for the arts," said Senator Kearney. It is through her commitment to nurture some of the city's greatest treasures—the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the Cincinnati Ballet and countless others—that generations of Cincinnatians will benefit for years to come. I extend my deepest condolences to her family, friends and the many Cincinnatians who benefitted from her generosity," said Senator Eric Kearney in a statement.
