Bob and Laura Mason celebrate 50 years

High school sweethearts Bob and Laura Mason of Weippe were married on June 24, 1961 in Cloverdale, CA.  The couple moved to Pierce in 1965 where they resided until 1996 when they moved to their rural Weippe home.

Bob worked for Potlatch Corp. 31 years at the Jaype plywood plant near Pierce in mid-management.  Laura worked for First Security Bank 28 years, the last 12 years as manager of the Pierce branch.

Both enjoy gardening. Bob plants the vegetable garden, and Laura enjoys flower gardening.  Both are active in the community.  Bob has served as a member of the Clearwater Valley Hospital Foundation Board; Laura has served on the J. Howard Bradbury Logging Museum board and as trustee on the Clearwater County Free Library District board.

Bob is a well-known custom gunstock maker, and has a home-based business which keeps him busy in his retirement years. He also loves to hunt and fish, and enjoys Idaho’s great outdoors.  Laura enjoys reading, baking, and being active in her Beta Sigma Phi chapter.  Both enjoy spending time with friends and family.

The couple has two grown children and one granddaughter.  They plan to celebrate their 50 years together with a family dinner, and have planned a trip for later in the summer.
