Dick and Alyce were recently surprised by their family and friends with a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration on June 22nd at Lochmere Country Club. Their children made sure it was very special by including music from the time they were married, feeding each other the first bite of a 4-tier marble cake, a slideshow with a myriad of memories of family and friends, a “first dance” to Elvis’ Can’t Help Falling In Love With You, and a visit from Auntie Henrietta that left guests in stitches!
Those in attendance included their 3 children and their spouses; Kim Edgren, Jennifer & Brett Sottak, and Rick & Kristie Jewell , their 11 grandchildren (Chloe, Nate and Molly Sottak, Micah, Jada, Alyssa, Rebekah, and Christian Edgren, Kaden, Quinn and Brady Jewell), Alyce’s brother Albert & Sheila Akerstrom, Dick’s brother John Jewell, and a special toast by Alyce’s brother Andy surprised them from Arizona! Extended family of nieces and nephews, friends and family were also there to celebrate this very special occasion.
A special thanks to Linda Nixon of Greenside Restaurant/Lochmere Country Club for the wonderful food and perfect accommodations!!
