Minden residents Gordon and Mary (Betty) North are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary Sunday. They were married in 1952 in Gulfport, Miss.
In early 2002, the couple moved to Minden from Stockton, Calif., where Gordon pursues his hobbies of flying, fishing and tennis and Betty concentrates on her love of gardening and sewing.
Both actively travel to visit their two grandchildren, Josh and Zach, in Albuquerque, N.M., as well as their two sons also living in Albuquerque.
They make frequent trips to the San Francisco area to visit their daughter, and family friends, too.
Their love of travel and their continued good health have allowed them to travel internationally as well.
They recently visited Hong Kong with friends, and are looking forward to seeing the fall colors of the Northeastern United States later this year. Since their move to Minden, they have made many friends who they host dinner parties for regularly.
Betty shares her many recipes while Gordon entertains guests with tales of mischief and family adventures.
