This past week, Mr. and Mrs. Escoubas celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary. Although John resides at Eventide Nursing Home and Janie does not, it doesn't stop them from being closer than ever. She visits our home daily, spending much of her time with her husband, and eating most meals with him. She puts the D in dedicated and it is quite obvious, that the love between the two is ever present.
Janie said that she and John met in Baytown, Texas at church.
When asked what their secret to a long, happy marriage is, she said, "communication." They have four wonderful children together: Melba, Jean, Sherri and Sue. She said the highlight of their marriage, of course, was having their children and that even when John was away, if it was an anniversary or special time, he always bought her something. Janie said the thing that she appreciates most about their relationship is the love and companionship that they share. They have been together since 1939. The Escoubas' are a model couple, and we wish them many more happy years together.
