J.E. and Wilma (Willie) Jones of Chesterfield, Mich., formerly of Rockford, will be celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary on July 7, 2012 at the open shelter at Townsend Park, Cannonsburg, from 1 p.m. until whenever.

They were married on February 16, 1952 in Lansing. In the late 1950s, they moved to their home on Ramsdell where they raised their four children: Jack, Tim, Cindy and Debbi. All four of them graduated

from Rockford High School.

J.E. spent 20 years volunteering for the Cannon Township Fire Department. Willie was a Girl Scout leader for several years and a member of the Mother’s Club at Cannonsburg Elementary School. They both worked many years on the fire department’s famous pancake dinners and have several fond memories of those dinners. Both have been members of Bostwick Lake Congregational Church, where they attended while they lived in the Rockford area.

J.E and Wilma have nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren and are anticipating the arrival of one more in late August.

The family would like to extend an invitation to anyone they might have missed. Please feel free to come and celebrate with them—please, no gifts—on Saturday, July 7.

“We thank you, Mom and Dad, for all your love and support throughout our lives. Your support for each other throughout the joys and challenges of your years together is an example for all whom have known you. Your remarkable partnership inspires all of us. An enduring love like yours is something we will treasure always. We love you!” —Jack, Tim, Cindy and Debbi and their families.
