Members of Helen’s family said Virgil caught Helen’s eye at the local drugstore where she worked when she was a senior in high school.

Virgil served in the U.S. Army in the Pacific Theater and Europe during World War II. He rose from private to captain before his discharge following the war.

Virgil and Helen married May 15, 1943. A business opportunity and California’s mild climate brought the pair to the area.

“California has been good to us,” they said, adding that they are looking forward to celebrating many more anniversaries.
