Reunited Sweethearts Marry

EAST STROUDSBURG — It was quite a wedding in the Poconos Sunday.

Jim and Pearl Toler tied the knot this afternoon at Big A Restaurant in East Stroudsburg.

They’re both 89 years old.

Family members say they met in 1930 in elementary school but Jim left school early to join the navy after the Pearl Harbor attacks.

Family members helped the two reconnect over Facebook in 2011. A few phones calls and emails later, Jim and Pearl decided it was time to get hitched.

“I’ve known her for many, many years but I lost track of her and found her on Facebook, or she found me. I think she was chasing me, I don’t know,” laughed Jim.

The happy couple have not made any honeymoon plans yet.
