Longs to celebrate 70th anniversary


Fred and Valeta Long, of Grand Coulee, will celebrate 70 years of marriage on Saturday.

They were married April 2, 1946.

Home from World War II, Fred had not thought he would ever get married, believing that he would never meet a woman who met his expectations.

"But the moment I saw her, I knew she was going to be my wife," he said. "It's been a good 70 years."

Fred, 93, and Valeta, 90, have lived in Grand Coulee for the last 23-and-a-half years.

Friends and family are invited to a celebration with cake Saturday, April 2, at Coulee Medical Center's extended care center, where Valeta lives, beginning at 10 a.m.
