Russell and Darlene Spear of Grass Valley celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on April 10.

Originally from Joice, Iowa, Darlene Evenson moved to California in her early 20s. She met Russell at a party in Oakland, and they married months later at the Lutheran Church of Reno. They settled in the Bay Area and raised a family in Los Gatos.

The Spears have two daughters and one granddaughter. Daughter Kim Yates still lives in Los Gatos while daughter Cheryl Baker lives at Lake Combie. Both daughters and granddaughter Christina joined Mr. and Mrs. Spear for a Royal Caribbean Cruise to celebrate the anniversary. It was a very special celebration.
