The daughters of Karel and Joyce Rawson are thrilled to announce the 60th wedding anniversary of their parents. While at Ossian High, Joyce and Karel dated and then married a couple years later, Oct. 31, 1959, in the E.U.B. church in Castalia.
Prior to moving to West Union forty years ago, they also lived near Cascade and Bernard where they farmed and were actively involved in the Presbyterian Church.
The couple is celebrating the occasion with their family — children and grandchildren. Their daughters and husbands are Janell and Kevin Hoey, Roxanne Rawson and Lezley and Lane Johansen. Their son, Haldain, died as a child following a long illness. (The family is especially grateful to their church and the Cascade and Bernard communities for their support during that difficult time.) Karel and Joyce have six grandchildren including Sean, Erin, Briana and Riley Hoey, and Lincoln and Chloe Johansen.
Cards of congratulations and best wishes may be sent to: Karel and Joyce Rawson at 701 Crestview Drive, West Union, IA 52175.
