Congratulations to our parents, Jim and Marlene Michaud, who will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on Thursday, April 19, 2018.


They were married at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Gilbert, and throughout their marriage have resided in Ames as members of St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church and staunch supporters of Ames High and Iowa State activities.


Jim is an Ames High graduate and retired after a long career in banking with the former Union Story Bank in Ames. Marlene is a Gilbert graduate and retired after raising the couple’s four children: Lori (Kevin) O’Connor; Steve (Janice) Michaud; Karen (Mark) Uhrich; and Michelle (Joel) Thilges.


They are the proud grandparents of Kendra (Dan) Hansen and Brian O’Connor; Nick, Andrew (Meredith) and Sarah Michaud; Megan (Heath Harris), Hannah and Ethan Uhrich; and Katelyn, Derek and Grant Thilges.


Thanks to these special parents and grandparents for their wonderful example of love and commitment shown to our family.
