"Rock solid" after 57 years of marriage: Dorothy and Art Oberto
After his father's sudden death in 1943, Art Oberto, with the help of his mother, took over snack company O Boy! Oberto. He was just 16. In 1954 he married Dorothy and they started to run the company together, Dorothy minding the books. The couple had four children, and as their family expanded, so did the the company, with many ups and downs. Their marriage had its ups and downs too, as many relationships do, but to their granddaughter, Cindy, they are rock solid. Married for 57 years, they share their relationship advice with Cindy on StoryCorps Northwest.
