Now, as they cel- ebrate their 60th anniversary, they live in a rural area of Monroe Coun- ty where they can watch horses and cows graze across the street. Robert said the couple left Illinois when there was snow on the ground and it felt 22 degrees below zero and moved to Perr GA to open a trucking company that handled Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. That was in 1977, and they lived in Perry until moving to Monroe County in about 2004. The Taylors, both of whom were only children, raised two sons and one daughter and have three grandchildren. One son lives near them, the other lives in Perry and the daughter lives in Oklahoma. The Taylors renewed their wedding vows on their 40th anniversary in a beautiful ceremony on a lake in Oklahoma. Robert said that one key to their long marriage may be that they learned how to be apart (when he was driving a truck on long-haul routes) and how to enjoy their time when they're together. Also, he lets her handle "all the money and busi- ness end" for the family. "It's been fun" he said of the last 60 years.
