You read it right. 80 years married.

Vern and Shirley Greet, age 99 and 97, recently celebrated their 80th wedding anniversary at their home at Aegis of Shoreline on 1st Ave NE.

The Culinary Team reserved the special table for two, and served champagne with raspberries and an amazing homemade Raspberry Lemon Curd Shortcake!

one for each
When asked what the secret to being married for 80 years is Vern thought for a bit and said, “Be very patient.  It takes a lot of love and never lose your love light.”  Shirley answered quickly and said, “I keep my mouth shut and try not to be too critical.  I also agree with Vern to be very patient and, of course, a lot of love.”  

The Greers owned and operated Greer Lumber on 85th in Greenwood for 47 years before they closed December 31, 1999.

They have lived at Aegis of Shoreline Assisted Living for the past three years.
