A Love Story for the Ages: Garry and Janet


February 16, 2024
In the heartwarming love story of Garry and Janet Buck, their journey began with a chance encounter in Geneva, Ohio, near the serene shores of Lake Erie. Garry, working at a local tourist spot, strolled into Janet's world at the drugstore where she worked. A simple conversation about horses sparked a connection that blossomed into a lifetime of love. Their first date, a charming horseback ride, set the tone for a romance that would endure the test of time.



After a year of courtship, Garry and Janet exchanged vows in November 1966, marking the beginning of their enduring partnership. Relocating to Cincinnati for Garry's job, they built a home and welcomed two beautiful daughters, Michelle and Stacia, into their lives. As the years passed, their love only grew stronger, celebrating 57 years of cherished memories and unwavering devotion.

At Salem Woods, where they now reside, Garry and Janet continue to inspire with their deep bond and commitment to each other. Garry's recent appointment as president of the Resident Council reflects their active involvement in community life. Yet, it's Janet, with her quiet strength and gentle spirit, who truly sets the tone for their shared journey.



Their story serves as a beacon of enduring love and family dedication, reminding us all of the profound joy found in lifelong companionship. As they express gratitude for the care they've received, Garry says that they are both in much better shape than when they moved in. The staff at Salem Woods echoes their appreciation for the privilege of witnessing such a beautiful love story unfold. Truly, Mr. and Mrs. Buck are a cherished part of the Salem Woods family, embodying the spirit of love and resilience that enriches us all.
