The Johrdes, of Bedford, celebrate 70 years

Friday, May 23, 2014

Paul and Charlene Johrde recently celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary with their daughters, Paula Harten and Joleen Worden and their families at their home in Bedford.

The Johrdes were married on April 15, 1944, at Fort Belvoir, Va. At the time Lt. Paul Johrde was serving in the U.S. Army. Paul is now 92 and Charlene is 89. The Johrdes moved to Bedford in 1997, and have been members of the Bedford Senior Citizens and Bedford Taxpayers Association.

There was an album of photos from their 50th anniversary, their repaired 66-year-old Toastmaster Toaster – “still working just like their marriage,” – and a cake stating, “Married 70 Years.”
