Dresslers celebrate 50th anniversary
Budd and Ruth Dressler, lifelong residents of Gardnerville and the Carson Valley, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 28, 2000.
The couple attended morning worship services at Trinity Lutheran Church in Gardnerville, where they are members. Jennifer Zabelsky sang “The Lord’s Prayer,” as it was sung at their wedding on May 28, 1950.
Following the service, son Ken Dressler and son-in-law and daughter Harry and Annette Swainston hosted a brunch for the couple and immediate family and Mrs. Dressler’s bridesmaid, Shirley Jones.
A dinner at Llewlyn’s at Lake Tahoe highlighted the evening.
The Dresslers are members of the Farm Bureau and Literary Club and were formerly the 20-30 Club. He was a Valley rancher and she was a manicurist and housewife.
The Dresslers and their family are planning an Alaskan cruise this summer in celebration of the 50th anniversary.
