The couple were married on April 4, 1954, in Frankton with the Rev. Stroup officiating. Jim is retired from General Motors and Judy from financing.
They are the proud parents of Peggy Parker, Patty Hersberger, Pam Rusher and Penny (Randy) Eblen. They are the proud grandparents of Jami (Tara), Jennifer, Justin (Amy), Jacole (Michael), Caleb (Narah), Meghan, Jarren, Joel and Joie. Their great-grandchildren are Tyler, Allie, Taylor, Emma, Skylar and Jett, and a great-grandson is due in August.
