Edwin "Ed" Hoyt Updike and Lillian Eloise Sturgis Updike, of Brevard, will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2020. They were united in marriage Aug. 26, 1950, in Ocala, Fla. They met at age 16 when Ed ventured from his home in New York to visit his aunt (Lillian's neighbor) in Ocala, and they have been together ever since. After an exciting courtship in New York City, while Ed attended Columbia University Medical School, and Lillian attended Cornell University Nursing School, they settled in Ocala, where they raised their five children.
