A second marriage for the two longtime retired Cobb educators, both widowers, the couple is making the most of their time together. Sybil, 73, and Boyd, who turns 86 on Sept. 25, enjoy traveling, among other things. This year, they vacationed at Yellowstone and other national parks, including Mt. Rushmore.
During the year, a new granddaughter, Camilla Hope Waits, was born, another highlight for the couple.
Parr, who knew McKeown's former wife because they went to the same beauty salon, met him on an educational trip. Nineteen years later, they encountered each other again at a dance and their enduring love story began.
Today, the McKeowns are hosting a brunch in honor of their first anniversary for family members at their Marietta home. Following lunch, they will entertain some of the friends who attended their wedding a cake and champagne reception.
On Sept. 16, the couple leaves for a cruise down the Rhine and Danube Rivers.
