Piper 40th

Jim and Ruby Piper of Cortland recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary with a two-week trip to Hawaii, where they renewed their vows at the Fern Grotto on the island of Kauai.

The couple were married on March 30, 1973, at St. Andrew’s United Metho-dist Church in Findlay.

They relocated to Cortland in 2009 upon Jim’s retirement from Cooper Tire and Rubber Co.

The couple have a daughter, Jennifer (Michael) Mosko of Cortland, and one granddaughter. They also have three children, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren from Ruby’s prior marriage.

Jim and Ruby enjoy baseball, gardening, travelling and spending time with their granddaughter, Regan, and their great-grandchildren.
