50 Years! Bill and Maryanne Bowers met 1951 in second grade (Vader), and married May 15, 1965. Daughters Debbie and Angie graduated Toledo High School, and Bowers moved to Drews Prairie Road in 1980 after losing their home of 10 years at Kid Valley when Mt St Helens erupted. Today they enjoy most days at home, Bill typically outdoors. Congratulations!
