Montreal woman Knar Bohjelian Yemenidjian, who was believed to be the last Canadian survivor of the Armenian genocide, died on Thursday, just before her 108th birthday.

According to CTV News, Yemenidjian and her family fled their home in 1915 when the Ottoman Turks began taking the lives of more than 1.5 million people.

In 1971, Yemenidjian found her way to Canada, which, in 2004, became one of the first countries to recognize the genocide.

A funeral service will be held for Yemenidjian on Wednesday at the Sourp Hagap Armenian Apostolic Cathedral in Montreal.​
