Vivian and Alice Get Married…After 72 Years Together
DAVENPORT, Iowa — More than seven decades after beginning their relationship, Vivian Boyack and Alice “Nonie” Dubes have gotten married.
Boyack, 91, and Dubes, 90, sat next to each other during Saturday’s ceremony, reports the Quad City Times.
“This is a celebration of something that should have happened a very long time ago,” the Rev. Linda Hunsaker told the small group of close friends and family who attended.
The women met in their hometown of Yale, Iowa, while growing up. Then they moved to Davenport in 1947 where Boyack taught school and Dubes did payroll work.
Dubes said the two have enjoyed their life together and over the years they have traveled to all 50 states, all the provinces of Canada, and to England twice.
“We’ve had a good time,” Dubes said.
Boyack said it takes a lot of love and work to keep a relationship going for 72 years.
“This is a celebration of something that should have happened a very long time ago.” What an understatement. Anyway, congratulations Vivian and Alice!
