Celebrating Love at McCarrick

Bill and Anne Celebrate their 45th Anniversary at Margaret McLaughlin McCarrick Care Center

This is a love story that began on a blind date that almost didn’t happen. More than four decades later Bill and Ann Pfeifer and their families still enjoy telling it. The story begins in New Brunswick when the not-yet Mrs. Ann Pfeifer decides to do her sister a favor – take her place and go on a blind date with Mr. Bill Pfeifer. That date eventually leads to the couple marrying at Sacred Heart Church in New Brunswick on July 5, 1968.

They raise their children - Bill Pfeifer, now of North Brunswick, and Anne Pfeifer-Ward, now of East Brunswick - in their native New Brunswick. Their love story continues today at the Margaret McLaughlin McCarrick Care Center of the Saint Peter’s Healthcare System where the Pfeifers live and this month celebrated 45 years of marriage. The family, which now includes three grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and the staff of the McCarrick Care Center, gathered to celebrate the happy occasion with them.
