Pete and Margaret Berry of Mountain Home have celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.

A reception was held Aug. 7 at First Southern Baptist Church to honor the couple, who were married Oct. 29, 1960, at the Mountain Home Air Force Base Chapel. At that time, Chaplain Braly united Margaret Fish with Pete Berry.

The couple have two children, Tracy Wenndt and her husband, Stan, of Rome, N.Y., and Mark Berry and his wife, Nicole, of Mountain Home.

They have five grandchildren, Joel, Derek and Nicholas Wenndt, and Connor and Avery Berry.

Pete and Margaret met in England in 1959. Pete returned to his new base at Mountain Home in 1960 and Margaret joined him eight months later. They have resided in Mountain Home all of their married life.

After the 50th celebration, the family visited Coeur d'Alene and Glacier National Park.
