What happens when one half of a happy couple becomes ill?

The next chapter

AVON — John and Nancy Munn met when they were in the first grade together in Avon. They’ve been life-long friends, husband and wife, partners, parents, and so much more.

“It really was truly a fairytale,” John said. “We were childhood friends and had our first date our freshman year. It didn’t work out that first time but we tried it again our sophomore year. I asked her to go with me as an escort to the athletic banquet.”

It was during their junior year at Avon High School that the couple started “going steady” and they’ve together since.

After graduation, John entered the military and served as a helicopter mechanic. Nancy attended Indiana University Dental School, graduating as a dental hygienist. They were married Feb. 14, 1965.

“My first real job was at Lake Central Airlines and eventually U.S. Airways,” John said. “Nancy worked for Dr. Leon Turner in Plainfield for 22 years. After he retired, she worked for Dr. Robert Hindman in Speedway for the last 16 or 17 years.”

John later attended college and went into the banking industry. He worked more than eight years for First National Bank of Danville and then spent more than six years with First National Bank and Trust of Plainfield. He returned to First National in Danville, becoming president in 1983. The bank eventually merged with Huntington Bank of Indiana and for the past several  years John has served as a consultant in the banking industry.

John said he grew up attending Faith Baptist Church in Avon but switched to Bartlett Chapel United Methodist Church once he got married.

“Nancy grew up at Bartlett Chapel,” he said. “I’m still a Baptist, but attend Bartlett since the marriage.”

The Munns have a daughter, Molly Hensley; a son-in-law, Darrell Hensley; and a 10 year old grandson, Jack Hensley.
