Anniversary: Mariann and Gary McDougall
Mariann and Gary McDougall will celebrate their 55th wedding anniversary on Oct. 8, 2011. They were both born in Denver, Colo.; however, Mariann moved to Los Angeles at the age of 5. They met in Denver in the summer of 1956 and eloped to Las Vegas three months later. They are both retired after many years in the workplace, Gary in the paper packaging industry as a national sales representative, and Mariann as a secretary and homemaker. They moved to Prescott Valley, Ariz., in 2007 from Mission Viejo, Calif.
They celebrated their wedding by renewing their vows at the Church in Cana, where Christ performed his first miracle. They were blessed by the Lord with three children, Rob (Leah), Kellie (Mike) Scannell, and Mike (Kristi); and seven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren whom they adore.
