After 50 years on the roller coaster ride of marriage, Jerry and Bonnie Krantz are proud to be celebrating their golden wedding anniversary.
High school sweethearts Gerald Krantz and Bonita Schier were married at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Bloomington on June 27, 1964. They have lived all of their married life in Bloomington where they raised four daughters – Amy Hermes, Stoughton; Paula (David) Breihan, Cottage Grove; Gloria (Michael) Landon, Lancaster; and Karla (Erik) Hendrickson, Madison.
Jerry and Bonnie have also been blessed with 10 grandchildren – Devon, Daniel (Mary) and Shanae (Brandon Woodward) Hermes; Lydia Breihan; Jessica (Mike Kaufman), Dustin (Lacey), Matthew, Sadie and Josie Landon; and Lukas Hendrickson; as well as five energetic great-grandchildren – Anna, Taylor, Allie, Owen and Addilynn.
The couple will be celebrating their anniversary with a family dinner at Tranel’s Supper Club in Bloomington followed by a trip to Laughlin, Nev., later this summer. Help make this accomplishment even more meaningful by sending them a note of congratulations to PO Box 43 in Bloomington.
