Siblings celebrate combined 212 years of marriage

Thirty years after their parents, Henry and Daisy Paul, celebrated

their 50th wedding anniversary at the Burbank home of their daughter,

Deane Paul Phinney, their four children marked their own golden


anniversary at the same location.

Lowell and Leah Paul of White Rock, British Columbia, celebrated

50 years of marriage; Eileen “Paul” and Robert Schultz of San Marino,

55 years; Patricia “Paul” and Larry Shook of Birmingham, Ala., 49


years; and Deane “Paul” and Harold Phinney of Burbank, 58 years.

Sixty-five family members were present at the celebration, some

local and others from Michigan, Alabama, Texas, Arizona, Canada,

Oregon and Northern California. A cousin, Harold Cope, attended

wearing the Scottish attire of the Robertson clan that is part of the

family heritage.

After the festivities, the evening ended with a video produced by

Heidi Paul that chronicled the family life history of the four


couples celebrating their anniversaries.
