Gillette couple celebrates 75th wedding anniversary

Kyle 75th

Ruedene Kyle lovingly touches the face of husband Lyle Kyle, both 94, in their Gillette home Monday afternoon. Monday is the couple’s 75th wedding anniversary — known as the diamond anniversary — and are as in love with each other now as they were when they wed.

In March 1935, Lyle Kyle joined the students at Jordan School, a one-room schoolhouse about a mile from his home on Richardson Farm in Platte County, Missouri.

He was in third grade, and Eltha Henderson taught all eight grades in the room.
