Max and Shirley Kearley celebrated their 70th anniversary Sept. 2. They were married in Compton, Calif., in 1939 and moved to Prescott in 1947, where they bought and managed the Hassayampa Court for many years. Max was a builder and built the First Baptist Church as well as many homes here in Prescott. They had three children: son Gary (Audie) of Big Bear, Calif.; daughter Susan (Gene) Wussow of Scottsdale; a son, Dale (deceased 2009); and daughter-in-law Patti of Prescott. They have six grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. They wish to thank family and friends for the love and many warm wishes expressed at this very special time.
