Bob and Betty were married in Mattoon, Ill. Jan. 28, 1949. They relocated in Phoenix in 1952.
Bob's association with Standard Oil resulted in his career of 28 years as a Chevron dealer in the Valley.
His second retirement was from real estate in the Sun City area.
Betty spent most of her working years as a secretary, mainly at Glendale Union High Schools.
She feels her greatest accomplishment was raising their four children: Steve, Richard, David and Tricia.
Retiring to Payson in 1998, Bob and Betty have found Payson a perfect area to invite their Valley family members, now numbering 14, to come and enjoy.
