Joint Birthday Party for NY Couple Married 82 Years

Sunday, 01 Mar 2015 08:45 AM

A husband and wife thought to be one of the oldest married couples in New York have celebrated their birthdays — and their combined ages will be 212.

The Journal News reports Duranord Veillard turned 108 on Saturday. His wife, Jeanne Veillard, won't turn 105 until May.

The couple celebrated Saturday at the Spring Valley home they share with their daughter.

Veillard is a native of Haiti who was a judge there.

He and his wife moved to the United States in 1968, raising five children while he worked as a hospital laboratory technician.

Though nearly blind and hard of hearing, Veillard still cracks jokes in Creole and does push-ups after getting up before dawn.

The Veillards have been married 82 years.
