Meeting in the hospital

We both were in the hospital for appendicitis surgery in June 1951. My surgery was on a Monday and his was on a Tuesday. One of my girlfriends stopped in to see me, then she said "I'm going down to see Harry." I wanted to go with her and I did. That was the beginning of my love story. Harry and I dated on and off for eight years. I was still in high school when he went into the service.

Then on November 21, 1959, we were married. We have one daughter. On November 21, 2009, we celebrated our 50th anniversary at Calvary Lutheran Church with family and friends.
