Until Death Do Us Part
Joyce Kleber, 71, spent the majority of her life focused on her career as a teacher. All of that changed when Frank Maslyn, 95, waltzed into her arms while dancing at Legacy Senior Living at Park Crescent in Greece, N.Y. Six weeks later, Frank proposed. "If you were to tell me, six or seven months ago, that I'd be getting married – I'd say you're crazy," said Joyce, who was used to living alone.
For the first time in her life, Joyce began planning a wedding and Frank left his apartment in Georgetown Park to move in with Joyce to her home in Hilton, N.Y. Although Frank remains active for his age, he warned Joyce that she might end up taking care of him. "I'm aware that day could possibly come," she said, "but we're happy now and I consider myself blessed."
