Sandercocks celebrate 70 years of marriage
Herbert and Jeannette Sandercock will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary on Feb. 25.
The Sandercocks were married at a Lutheran parsonage in Lucas, Ohio, on Feb. 25, 1950.
The couple, past owners of Sandercock Blueberry Farm, have lived in Sandy for 65 years.
The couple's daughter, Boring resident Cynthia Sabin (Roy), and their sons — Gresham resident Cliff Sandercock (Patti) and Modesto, Calif., resident James Storlie (Amanda) — will host a private celebratory family dinner at Avamere at Sandy.
Herbert served in the U.S. Navy in World War II before becoming a construction project manager.
He is an original member of the Sandy Veterans of Foreign Wars, one of the original members of the Mountain View Golf Club and was a member of the Oregon Blueberry Association.
Jeannette worked in a balloon factory in Ohio right after marriage and was co-owner of the Sandercock Blueberry Farm.
She is a member of the Sandy VFW Women's Auxiliary and the Oregon Blueberry Association.
The couple met during World War II. Herbert was best friends with Jeannette's brother in the service. They corresponded and married after his discharge in Ohio.
The couple moved to Oregon to get away from the cold Ohio winters and be close to family.
In addition to daughter Cindy Sabin, the couple has three sons: Cliff, James and David Sandercock, who is deceased.
The Sandercocks have 13 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.
