“Love is in the Air” Proposal Stories

Posted on: February 3, 2022

Robert and Marilyn Westberg
When Marilyn saw Robert in French class at college her heart did a flip! Then he asked her out to the ballgame. Bob noticed other boys in their French class were interested in her so, on their second date Bob asked her to go steady and sealed it with a first kiss. During that first year, they often met at the library and talked about plans for building their dream house. When Bob left for the Naval Academy, he asked Marilyn to wait for him. Marilyn waited four years for Captain Robert to return. They married in 1955 and are now celebrating their 67th anniversary!

Charles and Marjorie Cole

Charles and Marjorie ColeCharles and Marjorie first met at a dance in Pasadena. When the music stopped, they were both expected to move on to new partners. That’s when Charles said, “let’s stay together.” The following weekend Charles invited Marjorie to another dance and their romance blossomed with each dance that followed.

While living in Chatsworth in the San Fernando Valley, Charles began looking for a home in a cooler town. Together they agreed on a townhouse in Port Hueneme. Marjorie always visited on the weekends. During one of these visits, Charles gave Marjorie a crackerjack box. When she opened it, she found a large plastic ring! Charles said he asked Marjorie to marry him so he could be with her always rather than just on the weekend!

Greg and Nancy Morgan

Greg and Nancy Morgan“We had been going together about a year. Greg worked for an airline and got passes for flights. He had plans to go to a theatre festival in Nova Scotia, Canada, and he wanted me to go with him. But I didn’t want to pay the fare. So, we decided to get married secretly so I could go. We got married in the minister’s office one Sunday in May, with his wife as a witness. We asked them not to tell anyone because we were planning a wedding for the following Nov. We wanted to have a big reception and didn’t want to ruin it by telling people we were already married. So, it worked well. In fact, during that time, we visited my mother in another state and slept in separate bedrooms so she wouldn’t be offended. We didn’t tell her we were married! Anyway, you could say it was a marriage of convenience! Good thing it worked out!”

Our Happy Residents
  • My grandmother lives at the Ventura Townehouse and I feel confident that she is in good hands. They get her to her appointments and provide any aftercare that she may need. Everyone there is friendly and like family. I feel like I’m at home when I go there to visit her and eat with her in the dining room.

  • Recently, I visited my Mom from Chicago. Each day I offered to take us out and about in Ventura. We found ourselves having such an enjoyable time at the Townehouse we didn’t leave. The dining room was so lovey to enjoy with her friends. Patios welcoming and the activities kept us busy. We laughed and had fun all day! Thank you everyone for making me feel at home and making my visit special. It’s always hard to leave my mom. But not as hard when I know she is so happy! Until my next visit!
