After 72 years, Iowa women finally marry: DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — 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, the Quad City Times reports.
"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.
