Glenn and Mary Welshon celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary June 9, 2013, at Trinity Presbyterian Church, where they have been active members. They met at Grand Lake Lodge in Rock Mountain Nation Park, where both had summer employment. As a result of a summer romance, they were married in 1953 in Kaiserslautern, Germany, where Glenn was serving with the 427th Army Band.
They spent their teaching and business years in Colorado, Montana and Southern California before retiring to Prescott in 1992. Prescott has been an outstanding environment for participating in classical music groups, attending concerts and other community activities.
Through the years of love and commitment, their family has grown to include Debbie and Pam, longtime residents of Hawaii, Curt of Hemet, Calif., and Scott (deceased); eight grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Many of the family gathered in Prescott for a celebration.
