Bettys Celebrate 65 Years of Marriage

Charles and Viola Beatty will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary June 6 with a family dinner.

They began dating before they graduated from Lyndon High School. After Charles served two years in the Army, they settled on a farm southeast of Lyndon. Farming was mostly hay for the horses Charles raised or trained. He became a well-known auctioneer, with Viola assisting as a clerk or cashier.
