Larry and Judi DeWees, of Farmington, will celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary on April 8.

The couple met on a blind date March 5, 1971. Less than a month later, they were married on April 8, 1971, in Alliance, Neb., by a Methodist preacher.

At the time, Larry had just started his first teaching job, and Judi was still attending college. Now, Larry is a retired principal, and Judi is also a retiree.

Larry enjoys cooking and baking, and Judi is an avid reader.

The couple has two children, Dallas, who lives in Texas, and Denver, who lives in Farmington; and three grandchildren, Samantha, Bodee and Chloee DeWees, all of Farmington.
