Burkes married 50 years

By on October 12, 2016

John and Kathy Burke, of Lititz, will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Oct. 15.

They were married in Chicago, Ill., on Oct. 15, 1966. They met after John’s sister had suggested they be pen pals while he served in Vietnam.

John retired from Skyline Manufacturing in Leola. Kathy is still employed part time as a nurse with Central Penn Nursing.

They have three children: John Burke and Kim Kennelly of Charlotte, N.C.; and Kris Armitage of Lancaster; and seven grandchildren: Trey, Gage, Katie, Matt, Ben, Ryan, and Maggie.

They both enjoy playing golf, reading, and travel, as well as spending time with family and friends.

The Burkes celebrated the milestone earlier this year, spending the weekend with their children and grandchildren at Seven Springs. They will be enjoying a Mediterranean cruise to mark this occasion.
