August 17, 2014

Dr. John and Mary Slice celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a family vacation in Myrtle Beach, S.C., earlier this summer.

They were married on Aug. 1, 1964, at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Columbus, Nebraska. John’s father, the Rev. John N. Slice, presided at the ceremony.

Celebrating the occasion in South Carolina with them were their daughters Suzanne Engelke and husband Jeff of Roseville, Calif., and Brenda Rhodes and husband Roy of Lewisville, Texas, and grandchildren Jennifer Engelke, Amber Rhodes and Ryal Engelke.

Attending an anniversary dinner with the family in Myrtle Beach were John’s sister, Joan Marco and husband Dr. Gary Marco of Chapin, S.C., and John’s cousin, Dr. George H. Vam of Georgetown, S.C.

The Slices moved to Durant in the summer of 1971 where John practiced dentistry until his retirement in 2010.
