Touri Bolourchi, a 69-year-old retired nurse born in Tehran and educated in England, moved to the United States with her daughters in 1979, right after the Islamic revolution.

Her husband, Akbar Bolourchi, followed two years later, moving his internal medicine practice to Beverly Hills from Tehran. The two met when she was head nurse at Women's Hospital in Tehran and he was a practicing physician there.

Besides being an accomplished nurse, she spoke six languages: Turkish, English, French, Italian, Arabic and Farsi.

Touri Bolourchi boarded the flight in Boston after a two-week visit with a daughter, Roya Turan, and two grandsons. "She said, 'I'll see you when you come to L.A,' " Turan said. "She had that beautiful expression on her face, with her beautiful smile."

She hadn't flown to Boston for two years. "She was so afraid of airplanes," her husband said. Years ago, he explained, two of her cousins died in commercial airline crashes in Europe and Africa.

She is survived by her husband, her daughters Neda Bolourchi and Roya Turan, and grandsons Bobby Turan, 15, and Kayvon Turan, 10, of Boston. (bio by: Mayflower)
