Lewis and Alberta Frongner are celebrating 70 years of marriage. They were married on March 20, 1944 in Rigby Idaho. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake City Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints temple.

Lewis worked on his family’s farm until he enlisted in the army to fight in World War II just three months after their marriage. He served in the South Pacific and Philippines. He was a brakeman for the Union Pacific Railroad for many years. They made their home in Stoddard, Morgan County where they raised their four children.

Alberta was an excellent homemaker and taught her three daughters the importance of homemaking, gardening and living frugally. Her children say the best advice ever given was not to pay interest; earn it. She worked at the Ogden Arsenal during the war and later at Internal Revenue Service in Ogden.

After retirement, they bought an Air Stream and traveled with the Air Stream Club, where they met many wonderful friends. Great memories were made as the family met yearly at Blue Lake Resort at Bear Lake for lots of fun and his famous pancakes.

Their four children and spouses are Lou Jean and Walter Jay Thompson, North Ogden; Randy and Janice Frongner, Roberts Wyoming; Debbie and Brad (deceased) Toone, Morgan; and Judy and Marty Woolsey, Morgan. They have 12 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
