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.
