Dan and Loween Edgerly celebrated their 60th anniversary on March 12, 2014, with well-wishers and dear friends from their church family in Lebanon, Ore.

Dan Edgerly first met the lovely Loween Moore while visiting his brother’s family shortly after being discharged from the Air Force. It was love at first sight, and they were married on March 12, 1954.

They shared a passion for serving the Lord, and Dan contributed his talents in construction and masonry to further the growth of the church. Together they put their energy into building projects across the country and joined missions around the world in Palau, Saipan, Ethiopia and, most recently, Fiji.

The Edgerly family includes Kathy and Al Matthews of Wenatchee, Wash.; Tonia and Eugene Roemer of Wenatchee; Daniel and Glenda Edgerly of Yamhill, Ore.; DeAnn and Dane Silvernale of Glendive, Mont.; 9 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
