Parker 69th

Mr. and Mrs. Dale Parker of North Bloomfield and Lake Placid, Fla., will celebrate their 69th anniversary on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013.

Dale Parker and the former Ruth Evelyn Johnson of Lordstown, were married Nov. 9, 1944, in the parlor of the groom’s parents, officiated by Rev. Stewart.

They have lived most of their married life on the farm they purchased in 1946 in North Bloomfield. They reside in Florida during the colder months of winter.

Ruth is a retired schoolteacher and homemaker. Dale retired in 1984 as the postmaster of North Bloomfield. Both are active in the local Methodist church, and Dale continues to help in the farming operation.

The couple have two sons: Lynn (Rosalie) and Dean (Peg), both of North Bloomfield; five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
