Dennis and Celesta (Criswell) Mowrey, of Phoenix, were married July 29, 1961, in Lincoln, Neb. They have two children, Danette Dillon of Mancos, and Darren Mowrey and wife Michelle, of Scottsdale, Ariz. During the winter months, Dennis and Celesta are active in clubs and recreational past times in their community of Palm Lakes Village. Summer takes them to the road, traveling in their motor home to many places, including the Pacific Northwest, California coast and throughout the Rockies. A main source of pleasure is time spent with their four grandchildren, Jenna Lee, Reiss, and Delaney Dillon and Matthew Mowrey. Throughout their marriage and residences in Nebraska, Michigan, California and Arizona, they have made family and lifelong friends a loving priority. Congratulations on 50 years of love, laughter and ice cream!
