Mr. and Mrs. Bill (June) Halterman of rural Mazon will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary on Oct. 31, 2012.
Bill Halterman and the former June Traver were married in Wichita Falls, Texas where Bill was stationed in the Army Air Corps.
After the war, Bill returned to Mazon to farm. They continue to live on the farm, on land farmed by June’s family for over 100 years. They have been lucky enough to spend many winters in Southwest Florida.
Bill and June have three sons, Allen (Ginny) of Coal City, Gary (Sabine) of Cleveland, Ohio, and Kevin (Tamara) of Dwight. They also have eight grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.
