55th Wedding Anniversary
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Wheeldon
Richard and Mary Jane (Brown) Wheeldon were married Jan. 11, 1958. They have moved to different areas in Missouri and Kansas due to Richards work for the U.S. Postal Service.
Richard and Mary Jane have four children, Darryl, Darren (deceased), Derrick and Dana. They have nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Richard retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1995 with 34 years of service, 15 of those years as Postmaster of Great Bend, Kan.
They have traveled to over 20 European countries, with their last trip to France, Spain and Germany as a gift from their children instead of a reception for their anniversary.
