50th Anniversary

The Ortiz family and friends would like to congratulate Mr. & Mrs. Eugene Oritz on 50 years of marriage. Lefty & Carmen were married in the Holy Family Church in Jerome, on Oct. 26, 1958. Since then they have been enjoying life together in the Verde Valley. Lefty was originally employed by Petersen Sawmill in Cottonwood, and as time passed the business changed hands and he has been enjoying retirement for some time now from Lumbermen's. Carmen was employed with Verde Valley Medical Center for many years, after which she happily continued working with Dr. Elaine Young. Since closing of Dr. Young's practice, Carmen now also enjoys retirement. Together they encourage each other to stay happy and healthy by keeping up with their family, friends, and hobbies like baking, bowling, golf, camping/hunting, and believe it or not classes at Yavapai College! They also enjoy spending time with their four children who live nearby in Arizona, as well as their eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
