Herman and Kaleta Pryor

Herman Pryor married Kaleta Simpson in 1947 in Detroit, Texas.

The Decatur couple grew up together in Post Oak. After a few dates, Herman told Kaleta there was this girl he wanted to ask to marry him but he didn’t know how.

Kaleta thought he was talking about a past girlfriend and angrily replied, “Well, you just ask her.” So Herman asked, “Will you marry me?”

The couple’s children are Tommy, Jerry, Barbara, Gary, Charlotte, Ray, Susan, Larry and Rocky Pryor.

They have nine grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren.

Herman is retired from BK Trucking, and Kaleta is retired from child care.

Both are members of the First Baptist Church in Decatur.

The couple will celebrate their anniversary at home with their children.
