Lena Couple Celebrates 72 Years of Marriage


FREEPORT (WIFR) -- Valentine's Day is Friday, but that's not stopping one Lena couple from celebrating their love a little early.

Orval and Dorothy Shownhoven were surrounded by friends and family to commemorate their 72nd wedding anniversary. The 93 year-olds spent Wednesday at Manor Court in Freeport while enjoying cake and reminiscing. The perfect pair wed back in 1942 at Forreston Grove Church and family says they still act like a newlywed couple.
