Finally together: A wedding 62 years in the making
Last Updated: 74 days ago
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - High school classmates who shared a first kiss as teenagers back in 1951 have tied the knot six decades later.
Jane Dusanic and Jim Thorp were married Saturday at Jane's lakeside home in western Indiana's Vigo County with their respective children and step-children in attendance.
She's 77 and he's 76. They attended Central High School in Kansas City, Mo., but both married someone else and had families. They didn't see each other again until their 1989 high school reunion.
Thorp eventually got divorced and Dusanic's husband died in 2011. They began emailing each other last year, and this year love bloomed when Thorp visited his former high school classmate.
Dusanic tells the Tribune-Star they're very happy, "really good friends" and share many interests, including music, art and politics.
