Celebrating 75 years: Rodney and Leota Dillon of Hastings had some very humble beginnings and now prepare to celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary
Rodney and Leota Dillon are proof that there’s a lot more to a marriage than just a wedding.
On Tuesday, April 25, 1939, the two had decided to get married. They had to make the trip from Keystone, S.D., to Custer, S.D., to get their marriage license, but neither had a car. Their friend (nicknamed Little Hoot) agreed to drive them to the courthouse to get things under way.
