Dale and Janice (Lynch) Larsen's 60th wedding anniversary will be November, 18, 2011. They were married at the United Brethren Church in rural Gladbrook by Rev. Buss and Rev. Fuller. They have lived and farmed in the Lincoln, Gladbrook and Reinbeck areas most of their married lives. They are now retired and have been living in Cedar Falls for the past six years.
Dale has been actively involved in several community projects along with farming and enjoys helping on the farm at peak times. After graduation from Marshalltown Community College, Janice was employed as Program Director for the Marshalltown YWCA and previously at the Bauch Law Office in Traer. They have enjoyed extensive traveling through their 60 years of marriage and the past few years have spent winters in Mesa, Ariz.
They have a great appreciation of friends locally, and surrounding communities, plus distant areas and gratefully remember special times with them. These are the perfect gifts of sixty years of marriage.
They are the parents of two sons: Kipp Larsen (Nancy), rural Gladbrook; Brent Larsen (Jan), Houston, Texas; three grandchildren: Lindsay Larsen, Chelsey Currie (Steve); Hayley Schick (Tyler).
Dale and Janice will be celebrating in Iowa and Texas with their family.
