Morans celebrate 50 years together

Posted: November 17, 2012 - 12:51pm

Mike and Evelyn Moran were married on Nov. 15, 1962, at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Ennis, Mont.

They met after high school in Ennis. Evelyn graduated from Harrison High School, and Mike graduated from Sheridan High School.

After they were married, they lived in Alder, where Mike worked on the family ranch, then in construction for many years, and later for the State of Montana as the operator of the Ruby Dam and its canal systems. Mike also hunted, trapped, and fished throughout Montana. Evelyn was the bookkeeper for the 3 canal associations. She also was and still is an avid homemaker — quilting, sewing, canning, baking, etc. The couple was known countywide for their extraordinary garden.

Mike and Evelyn moved to Soldotna in 1984. Mike returned to the construction trade until his retirement (as well as a lot of fishing). Evelyn worked at Sal’s and then at Central Peninsula Hospital for 17 years, until her retirement this year.

They have four children — Robin Helms (Danny) of Duchesne, Utah; and Mary Coad (Skyler), Jennifer Bush (Dana), and Patrick Moran, all of Soldotna; as well as 14 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

The couple will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversay with family and friends on Nov. 25 at 3 p.m. at the Masonic Lodge in Soldotna.
