Fairmont couple celebrates 75th anniversary


Agnes Fritz is 95, and she still remembers that the little flower girl at her wedding – who is now 79 – wore powder blue. She and her husband Ellrich are celebrating their 75th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, but their memories and wit are still sharp, the Fairmont Sentinel reports.

The two, who lived on ranches in Colorado and Wyoming (one house had just an old wood stove for heat), have five children – the first born in 1946. They also have 15 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren – with another on the way.

"That's always such a happy occasion," Agnes said.
