Anniversary |



Don and Judy Boom were married on Father’s Day, 50 years ago, on June 15, 1958. They were married in the Grass Valley United Methodist Church with a reception following at Wesley Hall and then on to Judy’s parents’ home on Mills Road on the Rough and Ready Highway. The couple honeymooned in Yosemite for a week and saw the Fire Falls looking from Curry Village to Glacier Point.

Judy is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William J. Mills, of Millscraft TV in Grass Valley and developer/contractor of Sherwood Forest subdivision in Grass Valley.

Don is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Earl Boom, also of Grass Valley. Both Don and Judy are graduates of Nevada Union High School.

Don worked for the State of California, Department of General Services for his entire career after graduating from Chico State. Judy worked the front office for Doctors Kendall and Sargent for many years and was home in the afternoons for her kids, Debie (Ogden) of Grass Valley and Craig Boom of Sacramento. Their granddaughter, Kellie, will be attending Lyman Gilmore next year.

Don and Judy enjoy their lovely home in Sherwood Forest, spending time at their Bucks Lake cabin and traveling to Puerta Vallarta, Palm Desert, and traveling in their motor home to many locations during the year.

The photo was taken on their 50th anniversary cruise celebration in March.
