Vern and Sheila Johnson, lifelong residents of Milford, recently celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.

The former Sheila Erbter and Carl Vernon Johnson, were married on June 6, 1966 at 11 a.m. by Father Casey and the Rev. Erlandson at St. Ann Church in Devon.

They both are Milford High School graduates. Vern is a Navy veteran, and Sheila graduated from St. Vincent’s Nursing School.

They have three children — Eric, Scott and Kerstin — and two grandchildren, Vijay and Dillon, and enjoy sailing and genealogy.

The Johnson family celebrated with a weekend getaway to Cold Spring, N.Y. and enjoyed the scenery and sights of the Hudson Valley.
