Surrounded by family and friends Albert and Marjorie Kegley recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on July 6, 2019, at the Shelton Church located in Shelton, Wash.
Albert Kegley and Marjorie Wortman were married on April 5, 1959, at the Chehalis (Wash.) Church. In 1961, Albert started his own log trucking business, retiring in 2003. Marjorie was a stay-at-home mom until after her three daughters had graduated from Auburn Adventist Academy and were attending college. In 1984 she began working for the Washington Department of Health and retired in 2004.
The Kegleys lived in Olympia, Wash., until their retirement, when they moved to Shelton, Wash. During their time in Olympia, they were active members of the Olympia Church, with Albert serving as an elder, Marjorie as a Pathfinder counselor and both helping out in the children's Sabbath School classes. They were leaders in the Olympia RV club and spent more than 25 happy years camping in their motor home with the club.
Now living in Shelton, they are very involved with the Shelton Church. Albert serves as head deacon, and Marjorie supplies her delicious pies at church potlucks and auctions.
In their retirement, Albert keeps busy as a volunteer driver transporting people to medical appointments and Marjorie spends time crocheting infant blankets for the homeless shelter.
The Kegleys especially enjoy spending time with their family, which includes Laura and Scott Worf, Pam and J.P. Wegmuller, Karen and James McKown, 2 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
