Ed Sr. and Carleeta Chadima Eichler celebrated 70 years

on June 5

Ed Sr. and Carleeta met at Danceland in 1951. Ed is the son of Ed Sr. (deceased) and Evelyn Eichler of Marengo, Iowa. Carleeta is the daughter of Charles A. and Mildred Chadima of Cedar Rapids (all parents now deceased).

After a year of Danceland and family meetings, Ed was off to the Marines. When home on leave, we decided to get married. Ed had to get an extension from the Marines, so we got married on the 5th of June at St. Wenceslaus. Two days later, Ed was off to Camp Pendleton, Calif., and all worked out fine.

Here it is 70 years later. They are blessed with three children, Chris (Terry) Christianson, Ed. Jr. (Jeanne) Eichler, and Bruce (Kaye) Eichler, Louisiana; 10 grandchildren (one deceased); seven great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
