Residents Malcolm and LaVerne Masten share milestone birthdays together


Residents Malcolm and LaVerne Masten first met in junior high school playing the clarinet. Since their first meeting and falling in love, they have celebrated together many milestones including 76 years of marriage and turning 100 years old in recent months.

LaVerne’s birthday was earlier this month, while Malcolm’s big day was in August. The Fresno Bee newspaper recently interviewed the couple and their daughter Marlene Masten about their love story and big birthday celebration. The couple even offered a little advice on how to remain in a long and happy marriage.

 “Never show anger or let anger enter your lives—show love,” Malcolm shared with the Fresno Bee.  

“Treat each other special,” LaVerne said. Click here to discover more about the Mastens.
