Bud and Joanne Waller, 116 Crescent Drive, Michigan City, Ind., celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with their family in Michigan City.
Joanne Kilcoin and Mr. Waller, both of Rock Island, were married Feb. 14, 1953, at St. Joseph Catholic Church.
Their children are Nannette, Tracey, Carrie, Cyle and Darcey. They have six grandchildren.
Bud Waller owned and operated the B-K Root Beer Drive-In in Rock Island on 11th Street from 1945 to 1965. He met Joanne when she was a car hop at the B-K while she was in high school and a cheerleader at "Rocky High." Bud also owned the Koffee Mug across the street from the drive-in. In 1967, they moved their family of five girls to Michigan City, where Bud joined the B-K company, which he later owned with a partner and ultimately retired from.
