Johnsons of Bayonet Point celebrate 50th wedding anniversary

The Johnsons

Patricia and Edward Johnson of Bayonet Point celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Aug. 22.

The Johnsons grew up in the Bronx, N.Y., and have known each other since they were 6 and 7 years old. They married at Our Saviour's Catholic Church in the Bronx.

After Edward retired from the New York Police Department in 1976, they moved to Bayonet Point with their three children, Nancy, Edward Jr. and Erik. They have traveled throughout the world. To celebrate their anniversary, they took a seven-day cruise.

The anniversary celebration will continue in New York, where they plan to stay at the Waldorf Astoria and meet with family and childhood friends.
