Ron and Bonnie Kramer, 5918 93rd Ave. W., Taylor Ridge, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their family at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 23, 2013, at LaFlama, Moline. Relatives and friends are invited. No gifts, please. They are planning a larger event in the spring when their "snowbird" friends return.
Bonita Tatman, Reynolds, and Mr. Kramer, Milan, were married Feb. 23, 1963, at 15th Avenue Christian Church, Rock Island.
Their children are Tammy Kramer, Silver Creek, Ga.; and Kim (Rob) Colson, Sherrard. They have two grandchildren, Kyle and Taylor Colson.
Mr. Kramer was employed as a contractor and umpire, retiring in 2010 after 45 years.
Mrs. Kramer was employed at Royal Neighbors of America in numerous positions, mainly in the actuarial department, retiring in 2003 after 35 years.
Ron and Bonnie still enjoy spending their summers at the softball diamonds, now watching their granddaughter, Taylor, playing for the 14U Sonics.
