Bruce & Virginia Walters

Bruce & Virginia Walters

Milwaukee, July 1951 was a beautiful day when Ginny walked into the neighborhood grocery store where Bruce worked part-time. Ginny was about to start her last year of high school, and Bruce was on the eve of his military service in the Korean War, having just completed his pre-dental education. We both agree it was love at first sight.

Milwaukee, July 1951 was a beautiful day when Ginny walked into the neighborhood grocery store where Bruce worked part-time. Ginny was about to start her last year of high school, and Bruce was on the eve of his military service in the Korean War, having just completed his pre-dental education. We both agree it was love at first sight. After a number of such shopping encounters and flirting, we had our first date. After one year of dating and two years of engagement, we married, near the end of Bruce’s enlistment, on October 16, 1954.

For the next four years, Ginny worked as a Registered Dental Hygienist and happily produced a daughter and son, while Bruce worked on his doctorate in Dental Surgery, with the help of the GI Bill. This laid the foundation for a very enjoyable life, filled with two wonderful children, six beautiful grandchildren, and a number 14 great-grandchildren due next month.
Last October marked 68 years of wedded bliss and 71 years of being deeply in love, and we are looking forward to more good health and happiness.
