Neldon and JoAnn Dickey of Gresham celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Thursday, Dec. 19.

The couple marked the occasion during a family reunion in Sun River last summer and earlier this month with a surprise visit from their five children.

Neldon and JoAnn were married Dec. 19, 1963, at the Latter-day Saints Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah.

They have lived all of their married years together in Gresham except for two.

Shortly after the couple married, Neldon finished his degree in mechanical engineering at Brigham Young University and took a job with Boeing.

He eventually started his own business as a remodeling contractor, where he worked alongside his father, Russell, for many years.

JoAnn took pride in raising their five children: Avey Rawson, Duane Dickey, Laurinda Trammell, Deanna Bishop and Stephen Dickey.

Both Neldon and JoAnn served in different roles within the LDS Church over the years.

Neldon and JoAnn have spent 18,250 days together; lived at five addresses; raised five children; cared for 18 dogs; and welcomed 12 grandchildren into the world.
