Joel and Norma (Jensen) Stahl will celebrate 50 years of marriage Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. at the Irrigon Seventh-day Adventist Center in Irrigon, Ore. Hosts of the celebration are the couples children. Friends and family are invited to attend; the gift of presence is all that is necessary, but there will be a money tree for a special trip planned next spring.
Joel is a retired contractor, and Normal is a retired registered nurse.
In addition to their children, Shirlene Stahl of Irrigon and Anthony Stahl and wife Karina of Sebring, Fla., the couple has two grandchildren.
