Dorothy and Bruce


DURHAM — Bruce and Dorothy Rowe of Durham celebrated 50 years of marriage by renewing their vows and having their marriage blessed by Monsignor Charles Murphy, who married them on Aug. 17, 1963, at Sacred Heart Church in Yarmouth.

The couple has lived in Durham for the past 21 years, after serving 30 years in the U.S. Navy. They raised three daughters and have four grandsons and a great-grandson on the way.

After the ceremony, a reception was given by their three daughters at the Amvets Hall in Yarmouth, with approximately 70 family, friends and well-wishers attending from as far away as Virginia, New York, Illinois and Missouri.
