Marvin and Ellen Scheuble of Montrose named. . .

2018 Longest Married Couple in Minnesota

By Doug Voerding

Marvin and Ellen Scheuble have been married a long time, a really long time, more than 73 years. Their 74th anniversary will be on June 6 this year.

Ellen said in an interview in 2014, "We took that promise seriously. Getting married meant staying together forever. Failure was not an option."

Last Saturday, March 3, the Scheubles were honored as the 2018 Longest Married Couple in Minnesota by Worldwide Marriage Encounter. The award was presented during the 5:00 Mass at St. Mary's Church in Waverly by Dick and Mary Jo Hruby, representatives of Worldwide Marriage Encounter.

"What an inspiration Marvin and Ellen are to all of us." said the Hrubys. "They made a commitment to each other, and they kept that commitment. They truly are an inspiration and a sign of hope to all of us."

Marvin and Ellen Scheuble were married at St. Mary's in Waverly on June 6, 1944. Marvin was born in Waconia and Ellen in Watertown, but both were raised in the Montrose area. After their marriage, the Scheubles made Montrose their home, over the years living in four different houses. They still live in Montrose near many of their children.

The Scheubles had eleven children and now have 29 grandchildren and 48 great-grandchildren.

More than 100 family members and many friends celebrated with the Scheubles at a reception after the Mass.

Worldwide Marriage Encounter is a faith-based marriage enrichment program in the United States and in many parts of the world. The organization created the Longest Married Couple Project to highlight marriage in America and to show young couples that marriage can go the distance.

The Scheubles were selected based on nominations submitted and with the assistance of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
