Article from the Santa Rosa, California, Newspaper about their 25th wedding anniversary - 1958 - Anniversary Dinner
Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Clark celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary at a dinner party at the Union Hotel, Occidental. Joining in the celebration were the Clarks' children, Herold and Donna, and Mr. and Mrs. Glen Messner with Jan and John.
Information provided per my father's military papers, my father and mother and article that my mother kept.
I know what the tombstone says but this is from very distrubed people [Alma and her daughter Mardice] who never got over the divorce less than 5 years after the marriage - through lived together since 1966 they never remarried. Alma divorced her 2nd husband who raised the two girls in 1966. Daddy's second daughter never spoke to either Daddy or Alma again.
