Two Women Marry in Davenport, IA, Following 72 Year Engagement!

A wonderful article has been circulating today in local newspapers and on Facebook. It tells of two women who finally married each other after a 72-year engagement at First Christian Church in Davenport, IA.

The two brides are Vivian Boyack (91) and Alice "Nonie" Dubes (90).  Their wedding was officiated by Rev. Linda Hunsaker. They weren't alone with their celebration, but were instead joined by family members and friends.

The women met in back in their hometown of Yale, IA, before moving to Davenport back in 1947. Boyack is a retired teacher and Dubes worked in payroll for two different businesses. It's been reported that they have traveled to all 50 states, plus all of the Canadian provinces, plus England (twice).

Congratulations, Nonie and Vivian!
