COUPLE’S CHANCE encounter kicked off Mike and Anne Fraser’s years-long love affair.

Mike and Anne Fraser met by chance 47 years ago.

“I met my husband at my mom’s house,” Anne tells us.

She was at her mom’s S. Orange Grove Ave. home, as she was every Friday after work for dinner, when at about 7 p.m. the doorbell rang.

“I went to answer the bell, and there stood a telephone repair guy,” she recalled.

“Hi, my name is Mike, and I am here to answer the call that was made to the phone company for repair,” Mike said.

“He asked if I called the phone company, and I said, ‘no,’ and I had no idea that my mom was having phone trouble and that she had called telephone repair.

“That started our wonderful romance. We were married two years later, and this coming March will be our 45th wedding anniversary.”

The couple, who live in the Fairfax neighborhood west of La Brea Ave., have two daughters and three grandchildren.

“It seems we are more in love with each other with every passing day. We both feel blessed that we found each other,” Anne tells us.

“I believe you have to have trust and communication. To my husband and me, those two things are the most important to have for a good relationship. We consider each other our best friends.”

So did anyone call the phone company that fateful night?

“Yes, my mom really did call the phone company as she was having trouble dialing out.”
