Jens Verner Sorensen and Dorothy Ann Nelson were married on March 28, 1964, in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa.
Jens was from Boulstrup in Jutland; he immigrated in 1954, first to Canada and then to Iowa. When he and Dorothy were dating he told a good friend that when he kissed her in the car he got a static shock. The friend advised him “If you do, you better marry that gal – even if she is a Swede!”
