60th Anniversary Marvin Bade and
Marvin Bade and the former Betty Joyce Junker of Cuero were united in marriage on September 7, 1951 at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Cuero, TX. To honor them on their 60th wedding anniversary, their children and grandchildren hosted a BBQ supper and party on September 10, 2011. The event was held at the family country place on Old Yorktown Road where Betty's Mother grew up.
Everyone enjoyed a delicious meal of BBQ beef brisket with all the trimmings. Marvin and Betty enjoyed the afternoon visiting with some of their close friends and family including Marvin's sister, Mabel Mazoch and several of their nieces and nephews. Approximately 60 guests attended the event.
Marvin and Betty were blessed with four children: Karen Bade Henneke (Mark), Brenda Bade Arndt (David), Augie Bade (Karen) and Rodney Bade (Dawn) all of Cuero. They also have eight grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren.
Marvin and Betty would like to thank their granddaughter, Stephanie Bade Rauch for planning and organizing the event. They also want to thank all their children and grandchildren for helping with the special occasion.
