Varter (Armenian for Rose) was the daughter of Nazareth and Manoushag Sook(i)asian. Her mother died when she was very young, perhaps of complications from childbirth with her, though this is not confirmed. Rose's father had gone to Alexandria, Egypt and then on to America to start a new life and make money for his family, so Rose and her brother Sarkis were raised by their grandparents Toros and Mariam. Sarkis moved to America to live with his father in 1909, and Rose went as well two years later. She came to America through Ellis Island along with Mariam Donoian, who had been picked to be a new wife for Nazareth by his father back in Malatya. Rose married Kevork George Endrigian around 1919 and had three children with him before dying in 1929 of liver disease (uremia). They had lived at 1620 N. Franklin Street. She was originally buried in Monument Cemetery in North Philadelphia, but was moved to Lawnview when Monument was closed in the 1956.
