Couple celebrate 63rd anniversary
Vicente and Dora Perez
Vicente and Dora Perez celebrated their 63rd wedding anniversary on Aug. 26, 2013. During a visit to the El Rio Theater in Beeville, Texas, they decided to get married and exchanged vows on Aug. 26, 1950, in Beeville.
Shortly after the nuptials, the young couple moved to San Antonio and settled in a small country community outside of the city by Calaveras Lake. Vicente took a job at Kelly Air Force Base and Dora became a housewife and a young mother.
Each of their eight children grew up and graduated from East Central High School. Upon her children beginning school, Dora joined the work force to help support her family.
After working for many years, both Vicente and Dora retired in 1997. Although retired, neither can sit still, and they now enjoy spending time with their 12 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren, volunteering at St Anthony’s Catholic Church, and tending to their ever-growing vegetable garden.
Vicente and Dora have always lived by the motto, Family First, and continue to preach this to all that will listen. When asked, “How have you done it for all of these years?” Dora responds with a smile, “With lots of patience and even more prayer.”
Congratulations! And may God continue to give them good health, said their family.
