Wes & Elsie

Elsie married Wes Sullivan on March 14, 1943.  Their marriage lasted just over 50 years until she died of Alzheimer's disease.  Here is their Christmas card celebrating their 50th Anniversary.

Wes Sullivan was the editor of Salem's Oregon Statesman newspaper and chairman of the editorial board of the Statesman-Journal.
