Marie Hunt dropped out of school in the 1920s to help care for her siblings, but she finally got to walk down the aisle.

In the eighth grade, Wisconsin resident Marie Hunt had to drop out of school to help care for her 8 brothers and sisters. Presumably, she has since led a full life of wonder and achievements, but at 103, she still wasn't done checking things off the bucket list.

Marie currently lives at Meadows Assisted Living and Memory Care, and that's where she told her RN that her biggest regret was never getting her high school diploma. The RN, Debra Pfaff, got together with Marie's social worker Laura Burden, and they cooked up a plan to give her the ceremony she didn't get to experience in 1928.
