“My one true love is looking at me,” said Hubert Pellman, 97, gazing across the table at his wife, Mildred, 98. The couple was sitting in a room at Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community eating cookies and drinking coffee. Today, the pair celebrates their 75th wedding anniversary. … Hubert taught English at EMU for 39 years. He researched and wrote the university’s official 50-year history in the 1960s. He and his wife traveled to the West Coast for his first sabbatical at Westmont College in Santa Barbara, Calif. The professor also taught in England for a semester abroad program as well as in Japan for another sabbatical. more
