A chance encounter becomes lifelong romance

Allie Yura is getting married in June. She's the second of Wendy and Mark Yura’s three daughters. Earlier this year Allie brought her parents to the StoryCorps booth to talk about how they met at Burnham Harbor in Chicago in the summer of 1980. The story begins as Wendy was helping her friend search for an apartment.

StoryCorps’ mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to share, record and preserve their stories. These excerpts, edited by WBEZ, present some of our favorites from the current visit, as well as from previous trips.
