Couple matches outfits for 67 years

PLUMAS LAKE, Cal. (WKOW) — A couple in California has been wearing matching outfits for nearly 70 years.

Francis and RoseMary Klontz met in Auburn, Washington when they were kids.

“I thought she was the cutest little thing when she came into our town,” said Francis.

They started dating when they were seniors in high school and got married when they were 19-years-old.

Now, at 87-years-old, Francis has been letting Rosemary pick out his clothes every day for 67 years.

“She just lays it out for me, and I don’t have to worry about a thing,” he said.

Because… ‘happy wife, happy life.’

When asked the secret to a happy marriage, the pair had no trouble answering.

“Jesus first, others second, yourself last – that’s the way to spell ‘joy,” said Rosemary.

In their free time, they sing at their local church, hospitals and around the house. They are known as the “Singing Chaplains.”
