Carus and Melva Roed of Park Rapids will celebrate their 72nd wedding anniversary Saturday, June 25.

The couple, married in 1939, moved to Detroit, Mich. They returned to Erskine in 1953 to farm until Carus decided, "I was not a farmer."


They moved to Grand Forks where they lived for 44 years, Carus working as a carpenter. Park Rapids became home in 2000.

The couple were parents to four children, two daughters losing battles with cancer.
