The DeLoaches have been married for 64 years. They were married Sept. 2, 1944. When they first met, Leona was only 13 and Edwin was about 16 years old, but they got married when Leona was 18 and Edwin was 21.
"Both of us should have known better," Edwin jokes.
How did these two love birds meet?
Edwin was invited to someone else's family reunion in hopes of him meeting an aunt's sister who was single. Instead he met the love of his life, Leona.
