Ann and Norman Miller met in 10th grade. Norman lived near Ann’s best friend and so they got to see each other frequently. He said he knew she was the one from the first time he saw her. They’ve been married 69 years and have four children, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

The Joyces

Lillie moved to Winston-Salem to help her aunt out. Her aunt’s husband introduced her to Robert, a handsome candy salesman, and they’ve been together ever since. Married 68 years, the couple have two children, one grandchild and two great-grandchildren.


The Turners

Richard Turner was a paramedic and Bobbie was a waiter at his favorite diner. He said it was hard to ask her out because he couldn’t get her to sit still long enough to ask her. Mr. Turner stated that she is still as beautiful as the day he first saw her. The couple has been married for 32 years and have six children and six grandchildren.


The Settles
