The Block Island Times

A love story 65 years in the making

May 14, 2013

Spring is the season when life is re-affirmed, and so it was for Werner Feibes and James Schmitt when they were married on March 22 at 5 p.m. at 17 North Ferry Street in Schenectedy, N.Y., where they moved in 1956 to start a life together. Mr. Feibes and Mr. Schmitt are also residents of Block Island.

Judge Vincent Versaci made it legal.

The Partners For Life, ages 83 and 87, met in college in 1948 to study architecture, which they eventually practiced together for half a century.
