It’s never too late for love…
An Iowa City couple is getting married at South East Junior High nearly 50 years after they met there as seventh graders.
Karen Wilcox and Mike Wilson were brought together in 1962 by an alphabetized homeroom seating arrangement. They dated in eighth grade, but broke up by high school. They stayed in touch on and off throughout their lives.
The two started dating again in January after Wilson moved back to Iowa City from Florida, where he’d lived after retiring as a surgeon. They’ll get married in the same room where they shared their first dance.
