This amazing lady had two prominent grandfathers: from the father's side - the Rev. Fr. Khoren Shushanyan, from the mother's side - Andreas (Kaitsak) Sargsyan.
The Rev. Fr. Khoren (Garegin) Shushanyan was born in Van, Western Armenia in 1872. He graduated the famous Varaga Monastery spiritual school and afterwards was a teacher for a long time. When Mrs. Shushanyan speaks about her grandfather the Rev. Fr. Khoren Shushanyan who was ordained a priest in Holy Etchmiadzin in 1919 and served for a few decades in the spiritual center of All Armenians, one feels proudly that there were/are such dedicated people in our history / nowadays.
