Lillian and Mary
I have been thinking about my grandmothers a lot because both of them stayed married from the age of 21 until death (both were a few years past 80). Neither of them had a proper wedding: Mary eloped, and Lillian signed some papers at city hall. Both of them were teachers. Both of them were married to men named Don. Both of them went to church regularly even though neither husband could be bothered. Both of them loved parties and had lots of friends, and would have loved going to a great-grand-daughter's wedding in New Orleans. Here's an old one I wrote about Mary.
