Robert and Linda Treiberg of Nevada City celebrated their 50th anniversary recently.

They met in a Jr. Confirmation Class being held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Ventura, Calif. when they were 12 years old. They finished high school together and then Linda completed Sawyers Business College while Robert was firmly established in the Carpenter’s apprenticeship program. With their career paths laid out they were married at Trinity Lutheran on June 26, 1965.

Eight years later with a California Contractors License (signed by Gov. Reagan) and four year old son James in hand they moved to Nevada City to start Treiberg Construction Company. A year and a half later son Michael completed the family. Many years of successful contracting and continuing education led to interesting work in alternative energy construction projects near and far. Unique business opportunities took them to Hawaii as well as Iceland and other international locations.

A favorite family reunion was held in Sweden and at the Treiberg ancestral farm in Estonia. An annual family trip to San Diego is also high on the list.

In addition to family, time away from work focused on Scouting with Nevada City’s Troop 24, and church. Son Michael, daughter-in-law Melissa and granddaughter Christina live in Arizona so retirement on the horizon means work travel replaced by leisure travel, more family gatherings than ever and cross country RVing.
