Jerry and Marilyn Henson

Anniversary Jerry and Marilyn HensonThe family of Jerry and Marilyn Henson are proud to announce the 50th 

wedding anniversary of their parents. Our parents met at a funeral and as they say — the rest is history.

Jerry spent a couple of years in Vietnam while Marilyn attended BYU in 

Provo waiting for him to return. Jerry and Marilyn were married in the 

Manti Temple 50 years ago on Aug. 30, 1968.

Jerry and Marilyn have been blessed with 8 children, four by birth and four by 

marriage: John Paul and Peggy Henson, Sharon and Greg Jones, Joan and Sean Heap, 

and Marie and Shawn Davis. They have been blessed with 4 grandchildren: 

Ben, Elyse, Drew and Andrew and 4 1/2 great-grandchildren: Emma, 

Fletcher, Drake, Freya and a new baby to be named later in December.

Throughout Mom and Dad’s 50 years of marriage, they have enjoyed raising 

a family, having successful careers, traveling the country, wood 

working, doing genealogy and spending time with all of the family.

Our parents emulate the purest example of selfless love and commitment.  

For that we are eternally grateful.
