Leon and Vera Mehring
76th Wedding Anniversary
Vera and I want to say thank you to God and our wonderful family that we are able to celebrate our 76th wedding anniversary. We have been blessed with 6 children, 13 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren with 2 more expected in the spring, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. Our 76 years together have been dedicated to our faith, family, and each other.
Our love story started when I was stationed in England during WWII and met Vera, who is from London. We were married at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Rushden, England, on Oct. 20, 1945.
Also, on Oct. 29, 2021, I will be turning
96 years young. We have a lot to celebrate!
