George and Betty Beech, 50th Anniversary
George and Betty Beech will celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. They were married at First Presbyterian Church in Pipestone, MN on September 9th, 1961.
They have four children: Stacy (Mike) Sinner of Byron, Susie (Jim) Paynter of Mantorville, George (Christine) Beech of Mantorville and Angie Vizenor of Stillwater, WI.
They also have six grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren.
The couple made Byron their home in 1966 where George taught 5th Grade for thirty plus years and Betty raised children and a small army of critters including horses, cows, pigs, dairy goats and chickens, along with dogs and cats. She later worked as a rural carrier for the Byron Postal Service.
Since retirement, the couple enjoys spending time with family and friends and traveling. They recently returned home from an Alaskan cruise to commemorate their anniversary.
They will celebrate at a later date in Deerwood, MN with extended family.
