Evelyn Baktuit of Kenai and Leo Boulette of Waterville, Maine, met in Anchorage in 1959.
Evelyn Baktuit said, "Yes, we fell madly in love with each other, soul mates. Got married in Waterville on April 23, 1960. Lived off love the first two years which produced two children, Michael and Teresa. Decided we needed an income also -- so Leo worked until his retirement in 1999. Our pride and joy these 50 years have been our children, Michael and his late wife, Lisa, and Terri and Mark Murray. Also our six grandchildren, Danielle, Brittany, Matthew, Camryn Boulette and Nicole and Taylor Murray. The secret to a happy 50 years is to laugh, love, cry and work together. Love yourself but love each other more. Ah, looking forward to our 60th."
