Westbrook Couple Celebrates 70 Years of Marriage

[Irving and Ethel Knowles] stand out in today’s world for a lot of reasons. At a
time when the divorce rate in the United States is nearly 50 percent of all
marriages, their union is still going strong after 70 years. Also, in an era
when many people move frequently, in search of a bigger and better house, the
couple remains happily ensconced in the cozy little house on Rochester Street
that has been their home for seven decades.
For the record, Mr. and Mrs. Knowles were not the neighbors responsible for my Westbrook Wake-Up a couple years ago.
