Lonnie J. and Elinor L. Montgomery reached their golden wedding anniversary this weekend. They were married on August 1, 1959 at St. John's Lutheran Church on Cornwall Avenue in Bellingham. They are celebrating in Alaska with their dear friends, three other couples that married that same summer. Lonnie and Elinor lived their entire married life in or near Bellingham surrounded by lots of extended family and friends. They have traveled extensively visiting many European and Scandinavian countries, Newfoundland Canada, and all across the United States. Their daughters and sons-in-law are taking them to Maui this winter to congratulate them and learn their secrets to a long and happy marriage. A sister and their two granddaughters, Elizabeth and Katherine, will join them too. Lonnie and Elinor are devoted members of St. John's while residing in Everson, WA.
