IOWA (WITI) — Here come the brides! Together for 72 years, two Iowa women in their 90s tied the knot this past weekend.
The Quad City Times reports 90-year-old Alice “Nonie” Dubes and 91-year-old Vivian Doyack were married on Saturday, September 6th.
The women held hands while seated in their wheelchairs during the ceremony.
They met in Yale, Iowa and moved to Davenport in 1947. Doyack was an elementary school teacher, and Dubes did payroll.
The women have traveled to all 50 states, all of the provinces and Canada, and to England twice.
“We’ve had a good time,” Dubes said.
Same-sex marriage became legal in Iowa in 2009.
