Al and Rae Strunk were married Sept. 11, 1953 in Phoenix.
At that time Al was stationed at Luke Air Force Base. Upon his discharge in 1955, Al and Rae decided to make Arizona their home, and all four of their children were born at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix.
In 1973, they moved to Payson.
Their three youngest children graduated from Payson High School, and continue to live in Arizona: David in Payson, Kathy in Mesa, and Julie in Gilbert with her husband Troy and their niece Shannon.
An open house will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14 at the Payson Presbyterian Community Church lounge, 800 W. Main Street.
Friends are invited to join them in this celebration.
