Munzir El-Chehabi, left, and his wife Ismat were married on August 17, 1939 in Damascus, the capital of Syria. The couple immigrated to the United States in 1953 and moved to Niagara Falls in 1957, where they raised their four children. “Listen to each other,” is the advice that Ismat offers for young couples.
