Harns' 70th wedding anniversary

Colonel Edwin Willard Harn of Baltimore, Md. and Dorothy Elaine Henry of Danville, Va. married September 2, 1939 after a courtship spanning several years and many miles at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Baltimore.

They are the parents of four children, John (Vivien) and Wendy (Tim) who reside in Virginia, Joyce (John) who resides in Kentucky, and Sharon (Bill) of Indiana, as well as nine grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

Dorothy occupied her time as a young mother valiantly raising her oldest children in Virginia as Ed performed his patriotic duty in Europe during WW II.

Ed and Dorothy brought up their family in Alexandria, Va. In 1973, Ed retired after 33 years with the FAA in Washington, D.C., and in 1975 they relocated to Lake of the Woods in Locust Grove, Va., where they still reside. Ed was president of the Lake of the Woods Association in 1978-1979 as well as chairman of the Legal and Compliance Committee. He and Dorothy were charter members of Lake of the Woods Garden Club and participated in many other community activities.

Colonel and Mrs. Harn will be celebrating this momentous occasion with their family at the Lake of the Woods clubhouse Sunday evening, September 6.

Congratulations and great love from your family!
