Ronald & Joyce Durst
Ronald and Joyce Durst
On July 19, 2018, Ronald and Joyce Durst of Sun Lakes celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.
Ron and Joyce were high school sweethearts at Vandercook Lake High School in Michigan.
Ron played basketball and won many awards, one being the All Conference Basketball Player of the Year.
As a freshman, Joyce was a majorette for the marching band, and a year later, was voted to the position of drum majorette, performing and leading the marching band.
The pair started dating and was crowned the very first King and Queen of the school at their junior year spring concert, under the motto “Ron and Joyce, the junior’s choice.”
Ron and Joyce are proud parents of three children: Craig, who lives in Burbank, California, with his wife Mary; their daughter Terri and second son Kyle, both of whom reside in Chandler, Arizona. They have also been blessed with two granddaughters and one great-grandson.
The couple is enjoying their retirement in Sun Lakes, Arizona, and look forward to the rest of their years together.
