Anniversary: John and Peggy Clark celebrate 69 years

April 10, 1952, was a very special day for Miss Peggy Riley and Sgt. John Clark as they started their life’s journey together in an evening wedding ceremony at the 1st Baptist Church in Wellington, Texas. The couple moved to Long Beach, California, after being discharged from the Air Force where John attended Long Beach State College until graduating in 1958. During that time, they had two sons and had moved to Stanton, California, where they resided for 44 years. Both were active in church work as Sunday school teachers, being a deacon, and Peggy working 33 years as church secretary. John worked in the defense/aerospace industry, retiring from Hughes Aircraft in Fullerton, California in 1993. They now live in Dewey, Arizona. “‘They try to tell us we’re too young’ were the lyrics to a popular tune during this era, and that’s all we heard from our folks. We hope by now we have proven to them that love can endure.” (Courtesy)
