Marvin and Ellen Scheuble were married on June 6, 1944, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Waverly. Although they heard radio announcements about the D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy, they did not know the importance of the information, as they prepared for their wedding day.

After more than seventy years of marriage, Marvin and Ellen Scheuble are still best friends. Marvin who is 91 and Ellen who will turn 90 next month still live in the home they completed, a house that had been started by their son Melvin who died in Vietnam. Here is a photo of the couple taken this year. (Photo courtesy of Linda's Photography)

Marvin and Ellen enjoyed collecting and rebuilding cars, but sometimes just bought and drove cars that struck their sense of classic. While the Scheubles down-sized their car collection a few years ago, Ellen decided to keep her 1996 Chevrolet Beretta. (Photo courtesy of the Scheuble Family)

 

A few years back, Marvin and Ellen Scheuble brought their 1929 Model A Roadster to the Montrose Days car show and won the People's Choice award. The car was first owned by their son Rick, but they bought the car when Rick went into the service. Marvin worked on the mechanics, and Ellen redid the interior. The Scheubles gave the car back to Rick after he helped organize the auction where they sold 20 cars from their collection. (Photo courtesy of the Scheuble Family)

 

This photo of Marvin Scheuble with his accordion was taken one day in the summer of 1998. Marvin has played the accordion all of his life, and as luck would have it, he was playing the accordion in a band on the day he met Ellen, age 17. Ever since that day, the music has never stopped for them.
