Ralph and Alice Doffin, both Residents of St. Mary’s Home, celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in April. The Sisters, staff, and Residents were honored to share their happy day, which was complete with cake, wine, and music. Ralph and Alice were married in 1951 and have four children, including our very own Sister Emma.
The wedding festivities continued as the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton arrived later that month. Each Resident received a personal invitation delivered on a velvet pillow by the “Lord Chamberlain” (aka staff member Daniel Berger) Everyone wore appropriately gaudy hats and the halls were adorned with wedding decorations as a recording of the early morning event was played in the auditorium.
