Joyce and Karel Rawson

Joyce and Karel Rawson

 

The daughters of Karel and Joyce Rawson are thrilled to announce the 60th wedding anniversary of their parents.  While at Ossian High they dated, then married a couple years later on October 31, 1959 in the E.U.B. church in Castalia.  

Prior to moving to West Union forty years ago, they and their daughters lived in 4 different communities in NE Iowa, including Decorah where their son Haldain, the eldest of their 4 children, was born.  He died as a child following a long illness.

Farmers for nearly 50 years, including 25 years of Rawson Berries, Joyce and Karel also team drove semi-truck across country while farming and operating the berry patch. These days Karel continues to drive part-time and Joyce knits sweaters (literally hundreds) to donate.  As always, they continue to be very involved in their church.
