Nick and Faye Holt, of Minden, are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.
Their daughter, Judy Holt of Minden, sent information about their wedding.
“Nick had just turned 18 and Faye was 16 when they decided in secret to get married by eloping. The plan was to leave Fallon and run off to Gardnerville (they were short on funds, means of travel and needed someone to sign since Faye was underage).”
The couple enlisted the support of Faye’s older sister and her husband and put the plan into play April 18. (Nick had turned 18 on April 9.)
Nick borrowed money from his soon to be brother-in-law to pay for the marriage certificate and left for Gardnerville. Upon arriving, they discovered Judge Hickey was at the movies, and would have to wait.
Nick and Faye were married and returned to Fallon, wondering how to break the news to their families. They chickened out and each went back to their parents’ houses without telling a soul.
After a week, they worked up the courage to fess up. Everyone was happy for them and their life together began.
