Claude and Marjorie met while attending North Bend High School. They were married in the Methodist Church Nov. 26, 1948. Shortly after their wedding, the church burned down.
They raised their three children, Doug, Sherry and Curt, here in the North Bend area.
During his career, Claude taught for both Coos Bay and North Bend schools. Marjorie stayed home and raised their children, and when the children were school age, she then taught grade school at Roosevelt School in North Bend.
Both Claude and Marjorie enjoy camping, fishing, crabbing and getting together with family.
