One of Eagan Pointe’s resident couples, Stuart and Frances U., had their 70th wedding anniversary on January 18!
To help them celebrate such an amazing day, our residents and associates sang “Happy Anniversary” and presented them with a cake to enjoy together. They were also kind enough to share insights into their long, successful, and happy marriage:
Where did you meet?
We’ve known each other since we were children attending different grade schools, but we started dating when Frances became a teacher at the county school in Lennox, South Dakota.
Where did you get married?
St. Magdalen’s Catholic Church in Lennox.
What is your secret for being married 70 years?
Patience, fortitude, and putting the other head of yourself.
They have 4 children, 6 grandchildren, and 4 great-granddaughters with a 5th on the way. Please join us in congratulating and wishing a very happy anniversary to Frances and Stuart! ❤🎉🎂
After celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary, Eagan Pointe couple Stuart and Frances U. sent a lovely thank you note to our Residence Director, Renee:
“Thank you for honoring us on our 70th anniversary. It was a highlight of our day, since we couldn’t have a party or celebrate with our families and friends due to the pandemic.
I remember what you said, Renee, when we moved into our apartment 5-1/2 years ago: ‘Now this is your new home at Eagan Pointe, and the people living here will be like a new family.’
How true this has turned out to be!
We thank you and the staff for taking time off from their work, taking pictures, singing an anniversary song, and for the delicious cake we shared with some of our neighbors.
The pictures are very nice, and our family is already appreciating them.
Our thanks and appreciation to everyone.” -Fran and Stu
We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the celebration, Frances and Stuart! We’re so lucky to have such amazing people in our close-knit, supportive community, and we loved the opportunity to honor celebrate you both on such an incredible day.
