Mr. and Mrs. Robert Prince of Princeton recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

Bob Prince and the former Marilyn Ewing were married May 17, 1974, in Ottawa. They celebrated by first taking a one-week vacation to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and then on June 7 celebrated with a party at Chapel Hill with family and friends.

They are the parents of four children, Bill (Teresa) Prince, Amy Merritt, Wendy (Bob) Covers and Rob (Bobbie) Maggio. They also have 10 grandchildren, Brittany (Bob) O’Hagan, Kelsey (Kyle) Milborn, Emilee and Ethan Covers, Tristin, Ilianna and Aaden Maggio, Ashton and Jacob Prince, and Cody Merritt; and one great-grandson, Jameson O’Hagan.

Bob retired from Laborer’s Local 727 after 30 years. Marilyn had various jobs — the most recent being a receptionist at Ace Hardware Distribution Center and being an associate of Pioneer Research.
