Deane Sandell and Susan Sandell

June 22, 2014 

Deane & Susan Sandell Susan Benedict and Deane Sandell were united in marriage on June 20, 1964 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Bellingham. 50th anniversary celebrations began in January, 2014 with a family trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We traveled in China this spring for four fascinating weeks. Festivities continue with a barbecue at the beach and the burning of the "witch of winter." A heartfelt thank you to our children Tyler and Heather Sandell, and Wendy and Jonathan Cogan and our granddaughters Annika and Clara Sandell and Katie and Maya Cogan for hosting a marvelous gathering. A shared love of travel, history, good books, different cultures and new adventures have kept us growing. Church, music, animals and nature have kept us inspired. Wonderful family and friends have kept us joyful. Love and humor have kept us together.
