Donald and Gilberta (Horn) Lieuallen of Adams are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married March 15, 1968, at the Methodist Church in Walla Walla, Wash.
Don is a partner at D&R&R Lieuallen (farm), and has been throughout their marriage. Gilberta assisted with the farm and was a substitute teacher, the city recorder for the city of Adams, and had other jobs.
Gilberta is retired and enjoys giving the children’s lessons at the Adams church, is an avid reader, has spent many hours on both family and the city of Adams history, and is an expert mahjong player. Don still participates in and runs the farm, but enjoys bike riding and golfing.
They have four children: Thomas Lieuallen of Adams, Ore., Karen Lieuallen of Tucson, Ariz., Eric Sederburg of Adams, Ore., and Peter Sederburg or Richland, Wash. They have 12 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
An anniversary celebration (open house) is planned at the Adams’ Friendship Center on Sunday, March 18 from 1-3 p.m. The couple requests no gifts.
