Herman Griego and Ida Mireles were married on Jan. 1, 1953, at the Catholic church in San José.
As their children tell it, Ida’s family is from Los Lunas and Herman’s from San José, but the two grew up in the same Santa Fe neighborhood where they met and fell in love.
After the wedding, they remained in Santa Fe, where Herman worked for his uncle at Tito’s Market on Garcia Street and then for the U.S. Postal Service in Santa Fe for 30 years.
Ida also worked at Tito’s Market — for 40 years.
Now retired, both Herman and Ida like to travel. God and family have always been their priorities.
The couple’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren say they are very thankful to have such wonderful examples of love and care to guide their lives. They want to tell Herman and Ida, “We love you,” and “we hope this announcement was a surprise.”
The Griegos have four children, 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
