Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Reich Jr. of 872 E. 1700th St., Liberty, marked their 55th wedding anniversary with a road trip celebration last March to Clovis, N.M., Phoenix, Houston, New Orleans and St. Petersburg, Fla., visiting family and friends along the route.

Mr. Reich and the former Carol Fearing were married Jan. 19, 1958, in Clovis.

Mrs. Reich is a daughter of the late Jay Fearing and Mary Ruth Hart. Mr. Reich is a son of the late Theodore Reich Sr. and Victoria Reich.

They are the parents of Mrs. Stan (Dawn) Farlow of Camp Point, Dirk (Lisa) Reich of Liberty and Christopher (Denise) Reich of Largo, Fla. They have seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

The couple met while Mr. Reich was serving in the Air Force at Cannon Air Force Base in Clovis. After his service, they returned to Liberty to farm for 45 years. He is employed by McNay Truckline, and she helped with the farm and next-day delivery before her retirement.

They are members of Pleasant Grove United Methodist Church and the Adams County Farm Bureau.

 

In Case You Missed It

Silver Saukees: Pittsfield's state title team to reunite after 25 years
Tony Baker recently watched a video of the 1991 Class A state championship game with his 11-year-old daughter. It had been several years since Baker, an all-stater as a senior at Pittsfield High School, had seen the game. "I sure was awful skinny, and those shorts were awful short," he said with a laugh. "But it was neat to watch. It's kind of a blur, but I can remember plays that were called in every game. It's so surreal."
