Correy Marshall met his wife, LaKeisha, after his grandmother stopped into the Goodwill retail store where she was working at the time.
“She approached me and said, ‘You look like you would be a good wife for my grandson,’” LaKeisha said.
Surprised but intrigued, LaKeisha gave her phone number to the woman, but Correy didn’t call right away.
“I told my grandmother I was pretty good at meeting people myself,” Correy said. “The truth is, I wasn’t going to call.”
But his grandmother was persistent and Correy finally relented. He called LaKeisha, they set up their first date and the rest is history. They have been married for 7 years. His grandmother takes full credit for the love connection, and the couple agrees.
“Listen to your grandmother,” Correy said.
Although LaKeisha has since moved on from Goodwill, Correy ended up joining the not-for-profit and now manages his own store. He credits his wife with introducing him to Goodwill.
