LeRoy and Dora Wenker will celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary on Monday.

They were both born in the Lock Haven area and met each other at Lock Haven High School.

They were married on Feb. 12, 1943 in Lock Haven, at a house located at 204 W. Bald Eagle St.

Not long after, LeRoy was inducted into the Army. After he returned from World War II, the couple made their home in Lock Haven, and still take care of each other in their own home.

The family will mark the occasion with an anniversary dinner at Creekside Restaurant on Saturday. Family members attending will include four of their five children. Their oldest son, Kenneth, is deceased. And many of their 13 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, one great-great-granddaughter and special friends will also be in attendance at the celebration.
