Bob and Kathy "Mary" Hillyer will celebrate their upcoming 60th anniversary on Aug. 13, 2004, with a reception open to family and friends from 5-8 p.m. at their home.
The couple married Sept. 2, 1944, in Happy, Texas. They made Juneau their home many years ago while Bob worked as an operating engineer, and Kathy worked for Public Safety. After retiring, they started their own business called Hillyer Enterprises. They continue to run the business along with their son, Rob. The couple has four children, Rye Hillyer of Florida, Rob (Valerie) Hillyer of Juneau, Bonnie (Larry) Ragan of California and Alice (Jim) McNeer of Washington. They also have 11 grandchildren and four great grandchildren, with another due in January.
The couple requests the joy of your presence at their celebration as the only gift.
