Helene & George Waters

Celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Home: Canton, MI

What do you wish you knew before marriage?

“I would have married him sooner if I had any idea how wonderful the last 50 years would have been,” Helene states.

What do you love best about your spouse? 

“Helene is the glue that holds our family together,” says George. “She makes it easy to live and easier to love.”

What have you learned about marriage over the years?

“As we bury family and friends, we learn not to sweat the big stuff and compromise more often for each other,” Helene reveals.

He knew he was in love when…

He knew he had to transfer colleges to be with her.

She knew she was in love when…

She first saw him in kindergarten.

In 10 years we will…

Celebrate 60 years of marriage and be ever thankful to God.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

How much of a decorator his wife is! She decorates for EVERY holiday.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

How amazing life would be. She would have done it sooner!

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Play cards (we belong to a couples club) and bowl (we bowl in a senior league).

Our nicknames for each other are…

“Honey” and “Sweetie” but  now we call each other “Grammi” and “Grandpa”  because our greatest joys are our three grandchildren.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

On vacation anywhere.

Our song is…

Anything by Johnny Mathis.

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner at a fabulous restaurant with good food and good service. We also love a good movie, but those are generally date afternoons.
