Although this photo is over 15 years old, it was sent by a friend from UAL. Cherilyn Sarkisian aka Cher made a humanitarian trip to Armenia and brought toys for the children on a cargo plane. Cher is a big humanitarian for children’s causes and is on the cranofacial foundation’s board.
Grandma Sarkisian, lived behind Grandma Kachadurian in Fresno’s Armenian Town. When I was very young I remember her grandmother as a very tall woman. She would boast about her granddaughter’s beauty and talent to all the old Armenian ladies in the neighborhood. When Cherilyn would visit or live with her grandmother the other women would dout on her. My grandmother remembers brushing her hair and saying that she was a very sweet little girl. Cher was moved around alot when she was a child, her mother Georgia married 8 times (2 times to Cher’s dad Hovannes /John) She did attend Roosevelt High School for a while. Bravo to Cher for her work with all children.
