Marsha (Canner) Gegerson '60 and Robert Gegerson '59
We met while we were standing next to each other at the 1st base sideline, at a fraternity baseball game. Bob was a transfer student from UVA and I was a 16 year old freshman. Bob says that when he saw me he knew he was going to marry me, but marriage was not on my radar at that time. During my freshman year we often met outside of our classes and started dating. We got engaged the end of my junior year and Bob graduated that year and went on to grad school in N.J. We married one week after my graduation in 1960 and I took a position teaching. In 1976 I decided to go back to college to get my my R.N. Degree. I returned to teaching high school in 1996 and just retired last year from a college prep academy, amazingly at age 77. We are married 58 years and are still soulmates. We are both very happy, and very active volunteering in the healthcare industry and enjoying our children and college age grandkids.
