In her 101 years of life, Betty Bezas has seen a lot of the world. Bezas, who just celebrated her birthday on Christmas Day, was born on Dec. 25, 1912 in Greece, where she lived until she was 15 years old.

After her father died in a fire, when she was only 1 month old, Bezas lived with her mother, grandmother and uncle.

On Oct. 20, 1929, she had an arranged marriage to Zachary Bezas in Salonika, a city in northern Greece. After honeymooning in Paris, the couple moved to the United States, where Bezas knew no one but her husband's family.

On Oct. 28, 1930, Bezas gave birth to her first of three daughters.

An arranged marriage before she was 17, gave birth a year later.
