Russell and Helen Westcott of Pendleton will celebrate 60 years of marriage in 2012. They were married March 6, 1952.
They are both retired but stay active, and enjoy living part of the year in Yuma, Ariz.
Russell and Helen have two children, son Wes Westcott of Beaverton, Ore., and daughter Lorraine Walsh and husband Kerry of Happy Valley. They also have two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
The Westcotts' two children and son-in-law will fly to Yuma as a surprise to celebrate with their parents on their anniversary date. A summer party and gathering of family and friends is planned to help Russell and Helen celebrate their big event. The date is yet to be determined, but contact of family and friends will begin soon.
All who are interested in being a guest should contact Lori Walsh at 503-720-4483 or LoriWalsh@frontier.com.
