70 years of love
Arthur and Mildred Rath have been holding hands for seven decades. Longtime Elgin residents, the two will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary Sunday, Oct. 17.
“Whenever they are sitting next to each other, they are always holding hands. They watch TV holding hands, they sit next to each other when visiting family and hold hands,” describes their daughter, Sharon Schmitz.
Art, 91, and Mildred, 90, met in elementary school when Mildred moved to the Elgin area.
“Arthur at first thought she was just a skinny little girl, but he eventually changed his mind and they began dating, attending movies and dances,” Sharon shares.
