If they are not the oldest couple in Lancaster County this Valentine’s Day, the Twittys of Heath Springs are definitely in the running.
Gonze Lee Twitty, 97, and Margaret Stevenson Twitty, 94, met in 1950 when he was 31 and she was 28.
He was “tall and handsome,” Margaret remembers.
She had “feet that looked like they didn’t touch the ground,” Gonze says.
They met outside her father’s store, Stevenson’s Grocery, in downtown Lancaster. Margaret and her family lived next door.
