Wingate Faces

Dorothy Herron

Becky Wilkes, Dorothy and Lanny Herron’s daughter shared this story:

Dorothy Herron, director of Wingate’s nursing program, will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of her first blind date when she met her husband, Lanny, on October 26. The couple met at a college in Boston in 1963. Every year since then he has given her a rose for how many years they have been together, which means she will get a big bouquet of 50 roses this year! In return, she writes him a poem and illustrates a booklet of all of the things that happened in that past year. Congratulations to them both and may the tradition continue!
