Verl and Deanna Mecham celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary with family on August 9, 2014 at Maddox Restaurant.

They were high school sweethearts and were married on August 11, 1954 in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Salt Lake Temple. They have lived all their married life in Morgan.

Verl has always been and continues to be an active member in the community and the LDS Church. He has served as Bishop (twice) and Stake President. Verl partnered with his brother Geary to form Mecham Brother Construction. He was the heavy equipment operator for the company for 42 years before semi retiring.

Deanna was blessed to be a stay-at-home mom where she has been very active in the community and the LDS church as well. She has been Relief Society President, a visiting teacher and ward chorister. She has been a member of the community choir for 15 years and has also served as a volunteer at McKay Dee Hospital for over 17 years.

Together they served an LDS mission to Adam-ondi-Ahman, Missouri. Verl and Deanna enjoy spending time with their family at Mecham Meadows, four-wheeling, rides in the snowcat, supporting their grandkids in their sports activities and every Sunday night popcorn parties.

They were blessed with five daughters: Pam (Mark) Huerta, Pauline, Sherrie (Mark) Rich, Sue (Stan) Stark and Melanie (Eric) Moore. They are the proud grandparents to 14 grandkids and ten (soon to be 11) great-grandkids.

Congratulations Dad, Mom, Grandpa, Grandma. We love you!
