Hochstatters to note 50th wedding anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Hochstatter of Sheffield will observe their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday.

Jerry Hochstatter and the former Joyce Grampp were married June 7, 1964, in the First United Methodist Church of Walnut. They are the parents of two children, Jeff (Andrea) of Princeton and Julie (Tim) Stephens of Effingham. They also have eight grandchildren.

Jerry is a semi-retired farmer. Joyce is a retired English teacher/guidance counselor. Most of her 35 years of teaching were spent in Wyanet High School and Annawan High School.

A family gathering is planned for later this spring.

Cards may be sent to the couple at 5689 1950 North Ave., Sheffield, IL 61361.
