60th Anniversary

On this day, November 29th, in 1952,  
Eleanor Wilson
Bruce Carter
were joined in Holy Matrimony.

Bruce was a military man, so the family has lived in many, many different places including (but certainly not limited to) Germany, Arizona, Tennessee, several different places in Illinois, and more.

A brief history of their family life is as follows.

Bruce & Eleanor's first child, Philip Neil, was stillborn during their time in Germany.  They then decided to adopt a German infant, whom they named Eileen Yvonne.  In 1955, Alan Bruce was born.  Paul Richard was next.  Sandra Michele was born in 1959.  Then came Linda Sue.  Steven Bradford was next.  Their last child, David Earl, was stillborn.

I shall not take the time to expound in like manner upon each of their children's lives as that would take quite some time, but I shall note that Bruce & Eleanor Carter now have in addition to their
6 children,
30 grandchildren,
14 great-grandchildren, with some more on the way.
(No spouses were included in any of these numbers.)

Very nice tribute Heidi. I can see so many resemblances in the children.
