They were married Aug. 25, 1962.
Beverly was a homemaker before becoming a nursing assistant for many years at Woodlawn Hospital in Rochester. Cecil is currently a truck driver for Cargill in Mentone. They are both lifelong dairy farmers and gardeners and continue their passion together to this day.
The couple have three children, Arlyn (Dana) Miller, Leesburg; Kyle (Melinda) Miller, Claypool; and Teresa (Foy) Banghart, Claypool. They also have nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
To celebrate their anniversary, they took a trip earlier this summer to Vermont and plan to continue their travels by going to Michigan and Iowa within the following weeks.
