This is a love story for the books — and proof that fate works in very mysterious ways.
Ollie and Wills first met when they were teenagers, young and naive. Four years later, in 1955, the young couple tied the knot on Christmas Eve. It was a sweet yet simple occasion at St Joseph’s Catholic Church; they couldn’t afford much.
They went on to have two children and four grandchildren.
But after 10 years together, Ollie and Wills realized they’d married too young and decided it would be best to separate.
Ollie moved away and met her second husband Carl. They had four kids together. Meanwhile, Wills stayed in town and remarried for a second and then third time.
Ollie’s husband Carl passed away in 2010, and Wills’ third wife died shortly thereafter.
Then, in 2012, Ollie’s daughter from her second marriage invited her to a family Christmas party — and Wills just happened to be there.
48 years after their divorce, the newly widowed exes found themselves in the same room again by chance. Watch their story below to find out what happened next.
