60 Years

60 Years ago today, May 6, 1950, two young people, hand in hand, started on a life journey that extended far beyond that walk down the church aisle. Full of hope, and with a touch of fear, they faced the future together, eventually producing a fine family of children, grand-children, and now great grand-children.

The next few days we're celebrating with them. Here's a reprint of the announcement in the local newspaper:

Harold Hoch and Carol Mae Neis were married on May 6, 1950, at St. Peter Catholic Church (now St. Katharine Drexel). They will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary with their family on Mother’s Day.
Their children are Thom and Darlene (Soldner), Jerry and Debra (Krezinski), Jan and David Bilgri, and Bill. They have eight grandchildren and three great-grandsons.
Their attendants were Sharon (Neis) Kant, deceased; Floyd Hoch, June (Malak) Beers, deceased; Ed (Butch) Beers; Betty (Andercheck) Willihnganz and Cletus Willihnganz.

Happy 60th Anniversary Mom and Dad. You're the greatest Mom & Dad a blogger could hope for.
