Kent’s parents celebrate 70 Years of Marriage

Not many people live long enough to celebrate 70 years of marriage. We are so glad to be able to share Kent’s parents 70th Anniversary with you. The family shared a commemorative day with them when we were all together at a granddaughter’s wedding in May.

A recent picture at our family celebration.

And let’s show you a few picture over the years. Starting on their wedding day.

There are many more pictures but I hope this gives you an idea of their lives over these 40+ years that I’ve known them. Their daughter and Kent and I hosted a party a few weeks ago for their 70th here in their church. It was well attended and even our own daughter-in-law and grandson Silas were visiting us at the time!  They had some visitors that they haven’t seen in 50+ years. They enjoyed the afternoon and the good wishes and many cards and some gifts they received. It was a special time!

A few pictures from the day, as I was trying to make sure it all went well, so didn’t take as many pictures.

Well, it was a wonderful time. As I said not many people make it to 70 years of marriage. They are the first couple that I know personally that have made this milestone. We pray that you enjoyed your celebrations, mom and dad!

love,

Jan for the roaming Reimers
