Gene and Marty Cowles will be celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary on Oct 11, 2011. They were married in Dallas, TX, on October 11, 1946, not realizing it was the Texas/OU football weekend....
Gene retired as Lt. Colonel from the United States Air Force after 33 years and served in three Wars: Korea, WWII, and Vietnam. He retired for a year, then taught 6th grade Math at Newton Rayzor Elementary School for 10 years. In addition to being a dedicated wife and mother to their daughters, Marty volunteered for 34 years at Westgate/Denton Regional Hospital. Gene and Marty Cowles are members of First United Methodist Church in Denton, Texas.
The extended Cowles family includes: Jeanie and Bill Dudley, Jackie and Tommy Binder, Jody Hays, Jennifer and Kelly Pike, as well as ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
Your daughters want to bear testimony that true love does still exist, and let you know how much we appreciate you both, as parents, and as a example of what love is all about! Your dedication to each other over the years, especially during war times, is a true inspiration to those of us who have the pleasure of calling you parents, grandparents, and friends!
We love you dearly,
Happy 65th Anniversary
