CENTERVILLE — Dana and Glenn Moritz celebrated 50 years of marriage on June 3. They and their two sons, Henry and Andrew, hosted a 50th anniversary open house at 6 p.m. on Saturday, June 11 at the Appanoose Country Club. During the evening, Henry and Andrew played an original Jeopardy with their parents, and Andrew presented “Nifty at Fifty,” a song and PowerPoint that he and his wife Juliana created.

Dana states, “I wish I could say that we have had a successful marriage because we were mature and made good choices, but the reality is that we were probably just lucky.”  Glenn adds, “The marriage was probably a success because I married a smart woman who made good choices even if I didn't agree with them all.”

Glenn and Dana are well-known for their association with Centerville High School.  Glenn was the High School librarian for 31 years and Dana taught English for 24 years.

Their son Henry, his wife Sharon, and children Jennifer, Jonathan, and Karla live in The Woodlands north of Houston, Texas. Their son Andrew, his wife Juliana, and children Vivien, Harrison, and Brennan live in Jacksonville, Fla.
