70th Anniversary

Mr. & Mrs. Elmer S. Goheen will celebrate their 70th Wedding Anniversary with "Open House" to be held in Towne Hall of Towne House Retirement Community, 2209 St. Joe Center Road, Fort Wayne, from 2:00 until 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, January 12, 1986.
Both are natives of Eel River Township, Allen County.
Mr. Goheen taught several terms in one-room schools in Allen County before earning a BS Degree at Purdue University. He then taught 32 terms in Forest Park Junior High School in Fort Wayne before taking his retirement in 1959.
For further identification of ourselves: We built a new house on Orchard Lane and lived in it from 1959 until 1976. We were active in Churubuscu Methodist Church during that time. My wife's father was President of the former Exchange Bank in Churubusco. We still have many friends in the vicinity of Churubusco including John and Nancy Ford, Jim and Martha Wappes, Mary Kugler, Robert and Hazel Johnson and Wilbur Green. Several of whom were my former students. Irma Johnson, 321 S. Main St., Churubusco, is my wife's sister.
Jim Kirtley was one of my students in Forest Park Junior High School in Fort Wayne in 1927-28.
