Charles and Jacqueline Beery
50th Wedding Anniversary Charles and Jacqueline Beery celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a winter vacation to Maui. The high school sweethearts were married on January 3,1970, at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church in Bremen upon Charles’ return from being wounded in Vietnam. After completing his enlistment time in the Army at Fort Carson, Colorado, the couple returned home to Bremen to start their family. They are the proud parents of Julie (Bobby) Turpin and Brian (Angela) Beery, and loving grandparents of Brandon and Megan Beery. They are currently enjoying retirement in Columbia City following Charles’ retirement from Alcoa in Auburn and Jacqueline’s retirement from East Noble Schools in Kendallville and then consulting assignments across northern Indiana from Educational Services Company based in Indianapolis. Their children and grandchildren are planning a week of fun "Festivus" activities with them in June to further celebrate the couple’s golden anniversary.
