Irma And Harvey Celebrating 75th Anniversary

Say hello to Harvey and Irma. No not the hurricanes, the couple celebrating 75 years of wedded bliss.

When they first heard the news, Harvey and Irma thought their daughter was playing a joke on them.

“Oh, yeah, sure, and she looked at me and said, ‘Mom, I’m telling you the truth,” says Irma Schluter.

Because how could two devastating hurricanes be named after two very sweet people?

103-year-old Harvey and 92-year-old Irma met in Spokane many, many, years ago.

As it turns out, their siblings knew each other.

“And I opened the door and I saw a soldier and I shut the door because I didn’t know who it was,” says Irma.

But eventually, Irma opened her heart to Harvey, and the two married in 1942.

“I think he’s pretty special right now,” Irma says.
