Sandy and Jack Edwards celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary

Congratulations to Jack and Sandy Edwards who renewed their marriage vows at the 5 p.m. Mass, on Saturday July 2nd, at Holy Trinity.  Reverand Father Michael Patrick celebrated the Mass assisted by Deacon Williams.

Jack’s brother and sister, Peter Edwards and Sr. Claire Edwards, were the lectors at the Eucharistic Celebration.

Jack and Sandy were married July 1, 1961, in Edmond, OK. Jack was stationed at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma City, OK and Sandy was an operating room nurse at St. Anthony’s Hospital. The couple have six children, Elizabeth, Michael Ann, William, Joan, Mary and Sean. They have been blessed with sixteen grandchildren. Friends and family have traveled from New York, North Dakota, Minnesota, Nevada and Oregon to witness this event! 

Jack and Sandy have been Junior Ranger Hosts for eight summers, at Humbug Campground and Bullards Beach Campground. They have been parishioners of St. John’s and Holy Trinity during this time. Their winter home is in Boulder City, NV.

Following the Mass, a dinner was held in the Parish Hall as the celebration continued.

Jack and Sandy join Allison Hundley in the kitchen to thank those people who worked so hard to prepare and serve a delicous dinner to all the guests.  Master chef Stephanie Arriola spent many pre-event hours shopping and cooking and a full day in the kitchen "putting it all together."  Also assisting with preparation and cleanup were Elaine Caldwell, Kathryn McMahon, and Jodi Buzunis.
