100 and 102-year-old couple falls in love in nursing home, ties the knot

A couple meets, falls head-over-heels in love, and only months later they’re at the courthouse tying the knot.
It’s a familiar story—except in this case, we’re not talking about a young starry-eyed couple. Instead, it’s two seniors, both over 100 years old.


John and Phyllis Cook are both residents of the Kingston Residence, a senior care facility in Sylvania, Ohio. With their apartments just a floor apart, they found each other and formed a strong connection.

“To tell you the truth, we fell in love with each other,” Phyllis, turning 103 this summer, told WNWO. “I know you think that may be a little bit far-fetched for somebody our age, but we fell in love with each other.”

“Well, we were just compatible in a whole lot of ways, found ourselves enjoying each other’s company,” said John, a 100-year-old WWII veteran. They were both widows, having each been married twice before.
