The Shumakers

Betty and Ed Shumaker, of Spring Hill, recently celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary. They were married Sept. 3, 1949, at Outer Drive Presbyterian Church in Detroit.

Mr. Shumaker was drafted into the Army in 1952 during the Korean War and spent two years of active service in Baltimore with the Counterintelligence Corps.

Mrs. Shumaker accompanied him until she became pregnant in 1953, then returned to Detroit before the birth of their first child. The couple retired to Florida in March 1985, after Mr. Shumaker retired from the Ford Motor Co.

The Shumakers have three children: Ed, who lives in Tennessee, and Nancy and Lawrence of Michigan. They have seven grandchildren.
