TAHOE, Calif. and#8212; Three couples celebrated a combined 150 years of marriage and life at Tahoe with a celebratory dinner at The Pfeiffer House.

Jim and Diane Morrison met on New Year’s eve 1959 in Squaw Valley. Diane was a registered nurse on the medical staff for the Olympics and later that year joined the Tahoe Forest Hospital medical staff and continued working there in different departments for the next 37 years. Jim worked with Union Oil, and then went into property management and real estate. In 1967 he went to work for Safeway and spent the next 30 years with the company. Jim and Diane were the first couple married in the Squaw Valley Chapel after the Olympics and have been active members since then. Their two sons were born and raised in the area. Dave is an OB-GYN in Washington State and Doug and his wife own two businesses in Santa Cruz. They each have three children.

Jim and Diane were married on June 4, 1960 and recently had a special blessing at Squaw Valley Chapel honoring their 50 years of marriage. John and Jean Sproehnle were married on July 3, 1960 and Carl and Florence Wild were married on Dec. 29, 1960.

The dinner together had many laughs and tears. Many, and#8220;do you remember whens?and#8221; The children are grown and grand children are getting older.

A rare occasion when three couples, longtime friends, married and living in the Tahoe area for more than 50 years can get together to reminisce.
