|THE OLD COUPLE...photo 2013 by Ed Krauss|
BOB AND ROSE MOORE met during Rose's employment with Rowley Publications, the Painesville Telegraph, through her friendship with Bob's sister Vivian.
Vivian's bachelor brother Bob was introduced to her on a stormy winter evening in December 1959, when a group of Editorial Dept. employees gathered for a tobogganing party and winter cook-out.
Concerned about his sister travelling alone on such a snowy night on Concord Township's then-unpaved roads, Bob had dropped his sister off to travel on with the rest of the group.
His big mistake was dropping in to say hello. The chemistry was instant. From that point on, his bachelorhood was doomed.
Bob and Rose were married the following September.
