The Petersons, Murt (91) and Jerry (96), celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary last Thursday, July 13, at Story County Long Term Care in Nevada. They were married Friday, July 13, 1945. Jerry said 13, the day of their wedding, is a lucky number for him. SCMC’s Senior Care staff had fun helping Jerry surprise his bride with a beautiful corsage and cake for everyone there. Jerry said, “Dancing at the Moose Lodge in Ames from the time we were married until a few years ago kept our marriage alive.” He talked about how they followed the bands in Marshalltown, Newton, Boone, etc. Jerry also thanked the Lord for his blessings.
