Against her better judgment, Ginger Mangan accepted her uncle’s invitation to meet a young musician named Tom who would occasionally sit in with his country music band. That uncle turned out to be a better matchmaker than she thought. Ginger and Tom hit it off, danced all night and started dating. Against the advice of both of their families, who thought they were too young, they got married at age 19.
After 55 years of marriage, it’s safe to say their relationship has outlasted those early doubts. These days, the residents of Holts Summit, Missouri, have slowed down a little — Tom’s weekly gig is playing the electric bass during Sunday services at their church — but they still want to stay active.
