John and Anna Ivy
Belmont Village San Jose
Married on October 1, 1955 in Maywood, California
Married 57 years
The couple met on a blind date when Anna filled in for a friend who could not make it. They enjoy travel and working on crafts together. Anna knits and John works with wood. What has kept them together all these years? Mutual respect, the two magic words “yes, dear” and the homecomings when John returned from business trips.
According to John and Anna, for a marriage to endure for many happy years, partners must respect each other and have the ability to admit mistakes.
