How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
So, it started at albertsons grocery in 1980. I was 19 and Monroe was 16. He bagged groceries at my register whenever we worked the same shift. I liked him immediately but no self-respecting 19 year old goes out with a 16 year old with acne. So I kept my little crush under wraps and we flirted for 8 years. I left that employment in 1982 but still did my grocery shopping there, only when his car was in the parking lot though. One day in 1987 I get a call that the man went and got himself engaged. My first knee jerk reaction was “how could he?” A month after our first date he proposed and we got married a year later. That was 1988.
What do you love most about each other?
We have the same kind of humor. And lots of it!
What have you learned over your years of marriage?
That there is no other life we would want.
