Grobe, Mr. and Mrs. Edward (Golden - 1 August 2014)

Edward and Loretta Grobe, of Rapid City, MI, and Englewood, FL, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Aug. 2 and 3 at Shanty Creek Lodge in Bellaire, MI. They were married at Zion Lutheran Church in Granton Aug. 1, 1964. Edward graduated from Marshfield high School and UW-Stevens Point. He retired in 1998 as the director of development for Ingham County Michigan. Loretta graduated from Granton High School and UW-Stout and holds a Ph-D from Michigan State University. She served as a higher education consultant and retired from the State of Michigan Department of Education in 1997. Ed and Loretta have two sons, Kevin (Andrea) of Ohio and Justin (Ph-D) (Connie, Ph-D) of Iowa. They have four grandchildren, Madeline, Garett, Haley and Oliver.

Loretta’s mother, Clara Lewis, of Sunset Gardens Assisted living in Neillsville was able to attend and enjoy the festivities along with extended family and friends. Clara’s daughter, Lois, and her husband, Tom O’Donnell, of California flew into Mosinee airport, rented a car and picked up Clara, and the three drove through Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Loretta and Edward’s home to enjoy the festivities. All of Clara’s grandchildren were at the Golden Wedding celebration.
