Ocean City residents Edward and Alison Garity celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last month.
Edward Garity married Alison Skipworth on Sept. 13, 1952, at the home of the bride’s parents in Aberdeen. Pastor Milton Neese performed the ceremony.
The Garitys have lived on Grays Harbor for 49 years.
Edward Garity is a retired teacher and coach for the North Beach School District.
His wife is retired from the Ocean City-Shores Post Office.
The Garitys have four children, Edward Jr. of Bremerton, Thomas of Ocean Shores, Patti Dineen of Copalis Crossing and Nancy Grantham of Olympia. They also have four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
They celebrated their anniversary on Sept. 15 with an event hosted by their children at Alec’s By The Sea at which Michelle, one of their grandchildren, presented a heart-warming talk about her grandparents.
