Jack and Meta Sue Engler, Warsaw, are celebrating their 40th weding anniversary Sunday.
Jack and the former Meta Sue Taylor were married July 13, 1974, at Grace Brethren Church, Leesburg, by the Revs. Sandy and Wiley.
Jack had been stationed at Geat Lakes Naval Training in Chicago prior to the wedding. After graduation Friday he drove straight to Warsaw so he and his bride-to-be could get their marriage license. The wedding was scheduled for that weekend. The clerk’s office was closed – they missed it by five minutes – but luckily the person in charge of licneses saw them sitting in the hall and reopened the office.
The couple have three sons: Joshua (and spouse Dawn) and Jerrod, all of Warsaw; and Jake, Phoenix, Ariz. They also have three grandchildren: Katharine, Kurt and Renee, Warsaw.
They are planning to celebrate with family.
Congratulations can be sent to them at 3031 S. CR 25W, Warsaw, IN 46580.
