Kenneth and Claire Wall were married by Dr. Kendall on June 10, 1948 in the Central Methodist Church in Phoenix.
Both were born in Phoenix and attended local schools.
Kenneth served in the Navy on an aircraft carrier during World War II. The couple moved to Payson in June of 1987 after Kenneth retired from Southern Pacific Railroad as an engineer and Claire retired from Consolidated Freightways after 32 years.
The Walls built their first home in East Verde Park and have been active in the community. They plan to celebrate their anniversary with friends later this month.
