Stalls Celebrate 50 Years
August 15, 2009
Marjorie and Ralph Stall
Ralph and Marjorie Stall of New Lebanon, NY celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on August 15th. They were married in the East Chatham Methodist Church on August 15, 1959.
They have a daughter, Trisha, of New Lebanon, NY.
Ralph retired from General Electric/Martin Marietta, as a senior Designer in 1993 after 37 years of service. After retirement he worked part time as a design checker for Advanced Power Technologies, first in Pittsfield and then in Schodack, NY. Ralph is an avid golfer and plays almost every day at Bas-Ridge in Hinsdale, Mass, and has gotten two holes-in-one. He continues to try for the 3rd one.
Marjorie, formerly Marjorie Larabee, worked as a bookkeeper for the first few years of their marriage and then was a stay at home Mom and housewife. Marge is an avid quilt maker.
I am putting together a booklet for Mom and Dad, and if you would like to send me an email, I will include it in the booklet.
I know some of you know them very well, others have just seen them loading equipment at trials, or Dad fixing things, or bringing me items at trials. Or, some of you know of my Mom making that Teacup quilt for the TDAA nationals, or my parents making and bringing the food for my summer agility camp.
But, they do a great deal for me such as getting the trailer packed up, driven to the site, and unloading it, taking inventory of the ribbons and food after the trial is over. Plus, they take care of my dogs when I go to my day job adn when I am away judging on weekends. Anything you want to include is fine, either something you remember about them or just sending them good wishes. Thanks in advance!
