To say longevity is an integral part of Barbara and Boyd Rembe would be an understatement.
The couple, who now live at Elk Run Assisted Living in Evergreen, are 96 and 95, respectively, have been married 74 years and lived in Kittredge for 68 years.
“They’re incredible people,” said Loie Evans, a family friend. “She is such a fabulous musician, and Boyd can recite poetry like you wouldn’t believe.”
While their memories aren’t as good as they once were, the Rembes still enjoy their lives and their time together. They were on their way to California for a job for Boyd, when they stopped in Kittredge — and never left.
[BJ] was awarded a plaque for 32 years of service by the Kittredge Water and Sanitation District, and she was involved with Evergreen Players, the Seniors’ Resource Center, Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice and Evergreen Animal Protective League.
