Gene and Lois Lysher celebrate their 65th anniversary

Lois was only 15 when she caught Genes eye. He gave her a ride on his bike, and thats where it all began.

They married December 20, 1952, while Gene was on break from the Korean War. They have lived in Duluth, Minneapolis, Bismarck, Lake Sakakawea, and settled in Rapid City in 1997, wintering in Arizona for over 30 years.

They have three children (Keith Lysher (Terri), Kim Jirsa (Dan), and Heidi Porter (Steve)), and six grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

They are members of Blessed Sacrament Church. Gene used to love to hunt and fish, but now spends more time arguing with the billing department at the VA. Lois loves her computer games and gardening, and is renowned for her homemade jam. They enjoy going to Deadwood, watching politics, and most of all spending time with their family and friends.
