Meet Harvey and Irma, a Washington State couple married 75 years

The couple, from Spokane, Washington, have been married for 75 years, and though they've seen and experienced many things during their time together, they have never shared their names with two historic storms.

This year is the first time the Schluters, who remember the Great Depression, the Kennedy assassination and Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon, have seen major storms bearing names make national - and worldwide - headlines. Irma and Harvey have dedicated their lives to helping others and have fostered more than 100 children throughout their marriage, on top of having three kids of their own. Harvey is 104 years old, and Irma will be 93 this November.

Given the severity of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, experts expect that the names will thus be put to bed.

"When Harvey and Irma Schluter said 'I do, ' Franklin D. Roosevelt was president of the United States, the cost of a new auto was $920 and former heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali was about 2 months old", the Spokesman-Review reported back in March, when celebrating the couple's milestone anniversary.

The World Meteorological Organization has altered names for tropical storms that form over the Atlantic since 1979.

The two celebrated their 75th anniversary this year.

Cancer fundraiser Connie Johnson dies
In February 2016, Samuel announced his retirement from acting in order to help focus on Connie's fundraising efforts. The charity, which boasts around 456,000 Facebook followers, has raised over $4 million for cancer research to date.

The Schluters, who helped raise groups of foster children, said they value helping people whenever possible.

Harvey and his wife Irma live in Spokane, Washington.

"The kids were here and they were telling me about the hurricanes, and I thought they were just goofing around", Irma told PEOPLE magazine.

Hurricanes that do not cause too much damage are used again six later - but if they are more serious, the names are retired. But in 2011, Hurricane Irene pummeled the Caribbean and many cities on the East Coast, so that name was retired.

#Hurricane Harvey was formed on August 17 and dissipated on September 2, 2017, affecting Houston, Texas and the surrounding areas.

"I think he's pretty special right now", Irma says. The couple confess they're a little bewildered by all the attention. Numerous children, some of whom keep in touch and call them Mom and Dad, were physically or developmentally disabled. "I'd try and help some people, I don't know how".
