Evange and Jim Smith celebrate 60th anniversary

Jim and Evange Smith, married on April 8, 1942, recently celebrated their 60th anniversary with friends and family.
   The Smiths moved from Chicago in 1946 with two children, Jimmy and Rick, to Houghton, near Kirkland. There they added Karen, Tom, Steve and Jerry to their family.
   In 1953 they settled on Bear Creek Road in Woodinville and completed their family with Mike and Jeff. They lived there for 42 years.
   For the past seven years they have been on Paradise Lake Road next door to one of their sons.
   They now have 15 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. They keep busy doing volunteer work in the community as Jehovah's Witnesses, canning and going to garage sales.
