Let us tell you a heartwarming story about a remarkable couple from Ohio. Hubert and June Malicote recently celebrated their 79th wedding anniversary and are both turning 100 years old. Yes, you read that right – 100 years old! Can you imagine the incredible journey they have shared together?
Hubert and June were born just ten days apart in July 1922. While they both grew up in rural Kentucky, their paths didn’t cross until they moved to Ohio in search of work. Fate brought them together in a church, where they met and formed a beautiful friendship. As time passed, their bond deepened, and they realized they were meant to be more than just friends.
And so, on June 8, 1943, Hubert and June became husband and wife. However, their commitment was tested when Hubert had to serve in the Navy in Hawaii for two years during World War II. Despite the physical distance, their love endured, and they eagerly reunited when Hubert returned.
The couple built a wonderful life together in Hamilton, Ohio, and were blessed with three children. Today, Hubert and June are proud grandparents to seven grandchildren and great-grandparents to eleven adorable great-grandchildren. Their family’s growth stands as a testament to the love and devotion they have shared over the years.
This year, Hubert and June are not just celebrating their 79th anniversary but also their 100th birthdays. They will be commemorating this monumental milestone with a joyful backyard party and a special church service. Their deep-rooted faith in each other and their unwavering love have been the foundation of their remarkable journey.
Hubert fondly recounts, “We never had any fights. We never had a single quarrel. We have not gone through life without problems, but we would never do anything that could harm each other. If there is a disagreement, you may have to leave for a couple of minutes.” Their ability to resolve conflict peacefully and with respect has undoubtedly played a significant role in their lasting love.
In their twilight years, Hubert and June still prioritize spending quality time together. Each evening, they sit down for dinner, watch a movie, and end the day with a tender kiss. Their love story is a testament to the joy and fulfillment that can be found in a lifelong partnership.
