The Conways were married March 25, 1967, in the Church of God at Fontanet by David Wise.

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Sommers

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Sommers of Terre Haute will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary on March 30, 2012.

The couple were married in New York City in 1947 at Temple Anshecheset.

During World War II Walter served as an artilleryman and forward observer with the 77th infantry division in the Pacific theatre of war. Shortly after their marriage, Louise, the former Louise Levite, graduated from Hunter College with a degree in botany. In 1948, the family moved to Terre Haute where Walter accepted an executive buying position at the Meis Department Store.

Walter worked at Meis for 40 years in a range of executive positions, including the women’s coat, suit and fur buyer. Since retiring in 1988, Walter has volunteered with the American Red Cross, Hospice of the Wabash Valley, the ESL Department of the Vigo County Public Library and the CANDLES Holocaust Museum. Louise has been an active contributor in Terre Haute through her leadership of Clothes Closet, an organization that donates clothes to school children, and her involvement with the Sisterhood of the United Hebrew Congregation.

The couple have two children, Ronald Sommers and wife Charles Mary of Houston, and Nancy Sommers and companion Joshua of Boston.

They also have four grandchildren, Demian and wife Liz, Devin, Rachel and Alexandra; and two great-grandchildren, Asher and Isabelle.
