When Marash Girl thinks of happy mothers (a slight twist on the meaning of the day), she remembers her mother who was always happy (except when we were mean little kids), always cheery, never a negative word to say about anybody, always ready to lend a helping hand. That was Marash Girl's mother, Lucille Mae ("Jennie") Vartanian Bilezikian. She loved her children, she loved her husband, she loved her neighbors, she even lent a helping hand to strangers. Perhaps that was why she was always happy. And her husband, Peter Bilezikian, adored his "Jennie with the Light Brown Hair"!
N.B. Oh, and by the way, Jennie's parents were not from Marash! They were from Aintab!!!!
