Dale and Patricia Pflanzer celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at the Castle Creek Golf Club in Lum on April 30, 2016. They enjoyed a lovely luncheon with family and friends, while being entertained by harpist Sylvia LaPratt. Their daughter, Shelley, wore a special dress for the event, which was originally worn by the mother of the groom, Maxine Pflanzer, at the wedding.
The Pflanzers were married April 30, 1966 at St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Warren, MI. They moved to their current home in Imlay City in 1972, where they raise hay and Hereford cattle. Dale is retired from the Ford Sterling Plant. The Pflanzers have two children, Shelley Pflanzer Lecrone (son-in-law Mark Lecrone), and Ryan Pflanzer. Grandchildren are Morgan Lecrone, Gavin Pflanzer, and Karl Lecrone.
