ANNIVERSARY

Dale and Carolyn Kreager

65th Anniversary

Dale and Carolyn (Lamb) Kreager are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary on March 12, 2018! High school sweethearts, Dale and Carolyn graduated from North Central High School in 1952. They were married the following year at the First Methodist Church in Spokane.

The young couple moved to Camp Pendleton while Dale was serving in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. They returned to the Inland Northwest, where they settled in Coeur d’Alene in 1961, where their three children, Rose, Mike and Kip graduated. They have nine grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

Dale retired from the construction industry, having helped build the sea wall on Lake Coeur d’Alene. Carolyn, along with her mother, Ruby, started the Coeur d’Alene Modeling Association at the North Shore Resort.

A special celebration party will be held at a later date this summer for friends and family.
