Couples announcements August 8, 2017




BERNALILLO, N.M. — Former Lower Yakima Valley residents Phyllis Burton of Sunnyside and Milton Ramsey of Grandview fell in love when they were both in high school in 1938. They dated for four years but were separated when Milton joined the U.S. Army Air Corps at the beginning of World War II. The couple decided to get married when Milton was home on leave in August 1942. They will celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary on Aug. 8, with family at a dinner hosted by their children in Bernalillo, NM. “They have lived many places, and had many adventures, but none as wonderful as being married to each other for 75 glorious years,” said their daughter, Marikay Ramsey.
