Golden Anniversary Celebration

Four generations of family

Ron Smith

On Saturday, April 2, a party celebrating the 50th golden wedding anniversary of Wanda and Ron Smith was held in the Tuscany Falls Ballroom. The party was organized by son and granddaughter, Ron and Holli DeBerry of Kansas. A 20-minute slide show of their and their families’ lives spanning 50 years together was produced by their youngest son Jim from Texas.

There were more than 120 family members and friends attending from Arizona; Kansas; California; Alberta, Ontario; and their home state of Wyoming in attendance. Ron and Wanda were born, grew up, and worked in Cheyenne, Wyo., for more than 60 years prior to moving to PebbleCreek in 2004.

The ballroom was decorated with Precious Moments centerpieces and pink heart and gold star balloons since Wanda has an extensive collection of Precious Moments figurines. Precious Moments have been a part of the couple’s life over the past 45 years.

Scrapbooks and pictures were displayed for attendees to enjoy. Guests signed around a matted photograph of the honored couple that will be hung next to the picture from their 25th anniversary.
