She began dating her future husband, Arlin J. Ludwig, at a dance on Valentine’s Day, 1938. On most dates, from that point on, they literally danced the night away.

In her 102 years, she’s seen many things most of us have only read about. She remembered the Model T, horse drawn plows and sleighs, singing Christmas songs in German, and much more.
