KAYSVILLE, Utah, Sept. 30 (UPI) — A city council in Utah passed a resolution honoring a couple celebrating a 95th birthday, an 89th birthday and a 70th wedding anniversary on the same day.

The Kaysville City Council passed a resolution declaring Sept. 30 — the 95th birthday of Woody Pilcher, the 89th birthday of Nellie Pilcher and the couple’s 70th wedding anniversary — Nellie Pilcher Appreciation Day, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday.

The Pilchers’ daughter, Patricia Lee, who has been married for 48 years, said her parents give an excellent example of marriage.

“I’ve never seen either one of them be selfish,” Lee said. “It’s not 50-50, it’s 100-100.”
