Spring Valley couple celebrates 70th anniversary

Posted:

SPRING VALLEY, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- 

Cliff and Eleanor Scheevel of Spring Valley said "I do" on September 3, 1940.

At 93 and 95 years old they're Staying together Through sickness and in health....

Eleanor Scheevel says, "We've had a lot of health problems but we've had a lot of good years."

Now, 70 years later their love is stronger than ever and they're celebrating a milestone...

So what's their secret? They say there isn't one...

Eleanor says, "We have no secret we were just blessed."

Cliff Scheevel says, "We were just happy and working hard so we didn't have time for anything else!"

Family and friends gathered from all over to help them celebrate their big day and offer congratulations...

The couple's daughter Janet Den Herder says, "I haven't even reached 70 years in age yet and to think they've been married 70 years is unbelievable."

Incredible for sure but their daughter says she always expected their marriage would last.

Den Herder says, "It's about commitment."

Friday's turnout was a good one. They spent the afternoon with a full room of family and friends.
