The Stormses

Roy K. and Elizabeth "Betty" Storms of Spring Hill recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. They were married June 28, 1952, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Jamestown, N.Y.

A celebration with more than 100 family members and friends was held for the couple on July 15 at American Legion Post 777 in their hometown of Jamestown.

Three of the couple's five children were in attendance: daughter Valerie and her husband, Eron Paul, and their two children from Champlain, N.Y.; daughter Julie and husband, Brian Jones, and their two sons from London, Ontario, and daughter Dawn and her husband, Greg Mullins, and their two sons from Knoxville, Tenn. Unable to attend were son Kevin and his wife, Anita Storms, of Columbia, Tenn., and daughter Kimberly and her husband, Ted Rust, of Chesapeake, Va.

Also attending were three members of the couple's original wedding party: William Weilacher, brother of the bride; Robert Storms, brother of the groom, and Jack Sturm, cousin of the groom.

Along with their five children, the Stormses have 12 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

The couple moved to Port Richey in 1986, then to Spring Hill in 1999.

Before retiring in 1986, Mr. Storms was employed by the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities, Electric Division, for 29 years. He also served in the Navy aboard the USS Wright and USS Soley from 1947 to 1950. Mrs. Storms earned her associate's degree from Jamestown Community College in 1983, worked for the Jamestown School System and served as a case manager for JNP, an outreach program of Immanuel Church. She was also a case manager at Gulf Coast Jewish Family Services in New Port Richey for four years until she retired in 1991.

Mr. Storms holds memberships in several fraternal organizations, including the Loyal Order of Moose, Eagles Aerie and Elks Lodge.
