 Friends and family of Kay and Ethel Beutler Andersen are invited to join them in celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary at an open house on Saturday, July 25, 2015, from 2-4 p.m. at the 3rd/10th LDS Ward church at 155 N. 200 W. in Preston.

Kay grew up in Preston and married Ethel Beutler, who was raised in Dayton. The couple was married in the Logan LDS Temple on March 30, 1955, and has been blessed with nine children, seven sons and two daughters; 46 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Their children are Lawrence (Susan) of Preston, Idaho; Bryan (Lisa) of Sacramento, Cali.; Brad (Julie) of Orangevale, Cali.; Cordel (Kris) of Draper, Utah; Nyla (Joe Alldredge) of Salem, Utah; Kelton (Annel) of South Jordan, Utah; Duane (Heather) of Lehi, Utah; Dalan (Allyson) of Salem, Utah; and Heidi (Shayne Pierce) of Pleasant Grove, Utah.

Kay inherited the family dairy farm from his father, expanding the farm from 40 acres to 200 acres after marriage. The farm taught the children to work hard; and Ethel used to say, “Our purpose is to raise children, not cows.”

Kay has served in various stake and ward callings within the LDS church, including two bishoprics, high priest group leader and high councilor. He was Farm Bureau President for ten years and served on the Soil Conversation Board for the State of Idaho for 13 years. He also served on the Franklin County Republican Committee for 20 years.

Ethel has served in various stake and ward callings, including Relief Society president, ward and stake Primary president, Young Women leader, pianist and choir leader. Her favorite calling was Gospel Doctrine teacher.

After retiring from the dairy farm, Kay and Ethel served six missions for the LDS church, including Kenya and Uganda, Africa; Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana, Wyoming, and Temple Square in Salt Lake City. Kay and Ethel are currently serving as workers in the Logan LDS Temple.

Kay and Ethel traveled around the country watching their sons wrestle. Their travels also took them to Korea, Japan, Thailand, and the Holy Land in Israel. Ethel always wanted to visit Switzerland, the home of her ancestors, but Kay would teasingly remark that she hadn’t even seen local places such as the Newton Dam. One day, Ethel took it upon herself to visit the Newton Dam. She returned home and reported, “I’ve seen the Newton Dam. Now we can go to Switzerland.” So they did just that.

Kay and Ethel have been truly blessed through their life and they would be honored to receive all family and friends at this open house to share in their joyous celebration of 60 years of marriage.

    Congratulations on your 50th anniversary. Steve and I celebrated ours last June. It’s hard to believe we have been married that long! But it’s been good for us and I’m sure for you.

    Exciting to hear. Didn’t know it has been that long as it seems like only yesterday. Congrats again.
