Chandonnets celebrate 35th

Fernand and Ann Chandonnet of Juneau were married on June 11, 1966, before a justice of the peace in a Massachusetts ceremony that Ann swears took all of ten seconds. Fern says it seemed more like an hour-and-a-half.

The couple, who met as freshmen English majors in college in a galaxy far, far away, moved to the Anchorage area in 1973. They have two sons, Yves De La Costa, of Miami, Fla., and Alexandre Chandonnet, of Detroit, Mich. Ann and Fern moved to Juneau two years ago to work for the Juneau Empire.

They celebrated their 30th anniversary by hiking the Chilkoot Trail with their faithful dog, Edo, who was frightened half to death by the suspension bridges. The couple will celebrate their 35th by renting a lighthouse without suspension bridges.
