Happy Valentine’s Day: Grandma and Grandpa Doerflinger

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I have decided to post about my adorable grandparents, Max Doerflinger and Margaret “Sis” Harney.

Margaret "Sis" Harney and Max Doerflinger were married 12 Jun 1934 in Seattle, King county, Washington. Based on how young they look, this photo was probably taken just before the couple was married or shortly after.


Aren't they just adorable?

Together, Max and Margaret "Sis" Doerflinger raised six children. Even after the devastating loss of their son, Eugene, in a car accident, Max and Margaret carried on. Margaret "Sis" met 4 of her 5 grandchildren (she passed away about 10 months before I was born) and Max met all of his grandchildren.

 Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. Why is it when I see couples who had a long and happy married, like your grandparents did, I get so teary-eyed? How I wish I also have the same love story.
