70 years – and counting

KINGMAN – Friday marked a milestone for Irene and Norman Klein that most married couples never see – a 70th anniversary. At 94 and 93, the couple is still happily in love and happily living at the Gardens Assisted Living Facility.The Kleins met through Norman’s cousin in Fon Du Lac, Wisc. Norman had gone there for vacation to visit family while working for a print shop in Chicago. After going on a blind date, the couple corresponded for a couple of years, Irene said, obviously hitting it off. On July 7, 1936, in the midst of the Great Depression, the couple married at St. Mary’s Church in Wisconsin.
