Wedding of Forrest Ladd and Jean Karns, 1950

Two years after they graduated from Bethany-Peniel College, Forrest Ladd, Jr., and Jean Karns were married in Jean's home church, the Church of the Nazarene in Ford, Kansas. Jean had taught for two years and Forrest had been in graduate school. The ceremony, conducted by Rev. George Lake and assisted by Rev. O. A. McGuire, took place on August 20, 1950. This page reflects glimpses of the wedding and some anniversaries, and concludes with pictures taken at a gathering in Spanish Cove Retirement Village called The Wedding Party. This gathering of couples, with their wedding pictures, took place on 8 June 2007. Jean decided to wear her wedding gown, and Forrest wore his wedding necktie.
