Widowed couple reconnects and marries six decades after they first met.
Kathryn Clark and Calvin Peppard recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary, more than 65 years after they first met. Their first encounter was in rural Nova Scotia in 1954, when Kathryn was 18 and Calvin was 20.
“I was keeping house for his cousin. His mother and dad came over, and he came with them and played cards,” recalls Kathryn, 83. “We went out a few times, and then I went back to Halifax.”
That brief romance turned into an ongoing friendship.
