Lifelong Snoqualmie Valley residents, Norris (Swede) and Sheila Anderson celebrate their golden wedding anniversary on Saturday, March 16, with a small family gathering and plan to take a trip this summer to celebrate this milestone.

Swede and Sheila were married at the Tolt Congregational Church in Carnation on March 16, 1963, and they continue to reside in Swede’s childhood home of Carnation.

They both grew up in the Lower Valley where Swede’s mother taught school in Carnation and Sheila’s family had the Richter Brothers farm in Fall City; both are graduates of Tolt High School.

After working in the dairy business for more than 40 years, Swede retired in 2003. Sheila’s primary career was raising their girls, and she worked at Boehm’s Candies in Issaquah for several years after they were in college.

Their three daughters, Tracy, Christine and Laurel, all graduated from Tolt High School in the early 80’s. They cherish their four grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

They enjoy genealogy research and spending time with their immediate and extended family.
