Juneau residents Kent and Donna Fagerstrom will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on July 8, 2009. Sweethearts then and sweethearts now, they were married July 8, 1949, in Lynden, Wash.
In September 1952, they moved to Juneau with their first son, Steve. Their next four, Dave, Phil, Darla and Mark, were born in Juneau. In 1955, they built their "cabin on the beach" on North Douglas, when the road was a narrow gravel road to about 2 Mile.
They couple said the always loved the wonderful people here and all the oppurtunities for work, play and survival. They may retire someday - right here, they said.
