Robert and Rosie (Mary Alice) Peak will enjoy celebrating their 68 years together this July 4, 2014.
They met when Rosie’s father moved his family from their home in Ironton to Marion to find job opportunities. Rosie had to leave her playground - the Ohio River.
It happened to be a lucky time because they moved across the street from Robert, and their life together began.
Roberts family: parents Hilda and Harold and 5 boys - Robert the oldest and then Jack, Richard, Bill and Gene.
Rosie’s family: parents John and Sadie with 8 children - Geraldine, Ken, John, Rosie, Don, Alfred, Phillis and June.
After marriage in Marion, Robert and Rosie moved to Fulton in 1953 where Robert worked at HPM in Mt. Gilead and Rosie became involved in the community with their four children: Robert Jr., Linda (Bonnette), Ron and Bryan.
They also have 13 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.
All of us wish Robert and Rosie a very Happy Anniversary. Love you so much!
