McClusky couple celebrates 75th wedding anniversary

MCCLUSKY, N.D. - A McClusky couple is celebrating a very special milestone. Erwin and Wilma Pfennig were surrounded by family to celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary.

Erwin says they meet in a sheep shed in Beulah during an evening dance. Their grandchildren say 75 years of marriage is inspiring.

"It's great to have their health to celebrate it together and yes it is very special to see them get that far," said grandson, Travis Pfennig.

And their secret to a long marriage...work. Both were farmers until the 1980's and say sometimes a little time apart in the field helps strengthen the relationship.
