Chuck was going off to fight in the China Burma theater in the war. Betty was his sweetheart who was staying at home. He was 25. She was 21.
They would have four children, though one would quietly pass away before she was 21 years of age. The other three would go on to marry and have children of their own.
They would retire and move from Pittsburgh to the warmer climates of Florida. From here they would travel around the United Sates, visiting their children. Their youngest son was in the Marine Corps, and they loved to visit him wherever he was stationed when they could.
