There wasn't a hint of cell phones or social media in the summer of 1939 at Bright's Grove.
But when there was a beautiful woman, this Ava Gardner look-a-like, on the nearby Lake Huron beach, word travelled like a lightning bolt.
Ken Davis, a vacationing teen from Detroit, heard about this vision – 21-year-old Cecile Dennis of London – and went to have a look. There, the 16-year-old spotted another girl, much closer to his 16 years, trying to ride a bicycle.
She crashed and Ken scrambled to her aid. They talked, and he discovered she was Cecile Dennis' younger sister Marian.
“That's how my grandmother and grandfather met,” Meryl Davis said.
