Rebecca Deibel

Rebecca Deibel, of Hammond, met the boy that would one day become her husband in elementary school.

Jeremy Deibel, who was in the grade below Rebecca, was just another kid to her back then. Many years later, she came across his profile while scrolling through Facebook late one night.

“I was like, what the heck, and sent a friend request,” Rebecca said.

It started out as just comments here and there, but then, things changed.

“I reached out to him when he lost a dear friend, and our friendship blossomed from there,” Rebeca said. “We went on our first date a few weeks later and never looked back.”
