Happily Ever After: Hedy and Alvin Klause Celebrate 60 Years!

This year marks the 60th wedding anniversary of Hedy and Alvin Klause, who married in Wetaskiwin in 1959. It was a chance meeting when Alvin first saw Hedy Grams riding her bicycle down Main Street in Wetaskiwin on a beautiful autumn day. He was immediately taken by her radiant smile and her most adorable dimples. It wasn't too long before their first date, which took place at Wetaskiwin Composite Highschool's annual Sadie Hawkins dance, and it marked the start of Hedy and Alvin's beautiful and happily ever after story. Hedy and Alvin continued to date throughout high school, with dance and music as integral parts of their relationship. Hedy was intensely studying piano while Alvin kept pace on the violin, which at times led to many competitive musical discussions. After completing high school, Hedy announced to Alvin that she was leaving to pursue her dreams of a musical career. Although this was no surprise to Alvin, he was deeply saddened by the news, and he told Hedy, with the absolute certainty of a man in love, "I will wait for you forever". After completing her studies at the University of Alberta, Hedy came back home and immediately went to find Alvin and announced, "I'm back!" with her radiant smile. It had been 10 years and during this time Alvin was now in charge of the family business, David Klause & Son, a pillar in the community of Wetaskiwin for over 50 years. Upon reflection on that wonderful day when Hedy returned from her studies, Alvin said, "No girl could match her, so I knew I just had to wait for her". Hedy and Alvin were married at the first United Church in Wetaskiwin on the 27th day of June 1959. Over the course of the last 60 years, love of family, friends, community and church have been of paramount importance in their lives. "One thing is for certain", both Hedy and Alvin have said, "we wouldn't change a thing". Happy 60th Anniversary to Hedy and Alvin, high school sweethearts, happily ever after.
