Gene and Betty Fox of Milton-Freewater celebrated 60 years of marriage on Aug. 16.
Gene and Betty met while attending Eastern Oregon University and married in Enterprise, Ore.
They have lived in Milton Freewater for 52 years.
Each worked for local schools for many years, retiring from Ferndale Elementary.
No matter where the Foxes might be in the community, former students approach them with smiles and fond memories.
Gene maintains a garden and orchard at their family home. Betty still joins her teaching friends each week for lunch, and is a writing pen pal to local third-graders.
