DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Two Des Moines residents who grew up just blocks apart but met only last year at a housing facility for seniors have gotten married.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1gl4ZYs ) that 80-year-old Doris DeBolt and 84-year-old Ray Reierson were wed on Saturday by DeBolt’s older brother in a ceremony at Fort Des Moines Senior Housing, an independent living facility. They’d met there last year, after Reierson’s wife died. DeBolt has been single since divorcing after 25 years of marriage.

After DeBolt and Reierson met and began exchanging details about their lives, they discovered they’d lived a few blocks apart on Des Moines’ Kirkwood Avenue for most of their childhoods.

DeBolt’s granddaughter, Lindsay Hunerdosse, says, “It’s so nice to know they have each other.”
