She married in 1962 in Los Angeles and settled with her husband, George, in San Diego, where they raised their three daughters. She has always enjoyed creative cooking, but has also maintained a deep respect for the traditional meals of the Armenian people, which were taught to her by her mother, aunt, and grandmother. Her book is a unique collection of favorite, and new, Armenian vegan meals, fond memories, and a heartfelt respect for all Armenians, a beautiful and resilient people.
