John and Jeanette Jensen of Walla Walla will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with their children and grandchildren.

They met in September 1965 at an all-city Luther League Officers meeting in Springfield, Ore., and wed on March 10, 1968.  

John was a power plant manager and Jeannette an educator. They retired five years ago and settled in Walla Walla.

They have lived in 23 different homes in six states and had many church homes and friends and now enjoy Blue Mountain Community Church, the people and the wine.  

They look forward to visiting their four children whenever they can, including Russ and Glamour Jensen of Kenmore, Wash., Kirstin and Marie Jensen Cox of Grangeville, Idaho, and John A. Jensen and Jamie L. Jensen, both of Mount Vernon, Wash.; 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
