Farmers’ children all grown up
They didn’t meet in high school. They didn’t meet in church. Their parents weren’t best friends and they weren’t living just across the street from each other. Eugene and Edith Albers weren’t victims of young love but they did fall in love during a generation of love – the ’70s.
The now elderly couple have spent more than 40 years with their fingers entwined. They will hold their frail hands together in June as they celebrate another year together during the annual Oliver County Old Settlers Days. They are two of five honorary Old Settlers chosen every year to commemorate the special few days a year celebrating the birth of the county.
