SYRACUSE Aug. 17, 2013, marked the 50th wedding anniversary of Lowell and Sharon Chapman of Syracuse, formerly of Nappanee.
On Aug. 18, 2013, the couple’s son hosted an open house and gathered family to celebrate with the Chapmans in their Dewart Lake home.
The Rev. Robert Fields united the couple in marriage during a 1963 ceremony, which took place at Church of the Brethren in Nappanee.
They raised a son, Allen Chapman, and daughter, Marcia (Chapman) Kretschmer, in the Nappanee community before retiring to divide their time between homes on Dewart Lake in Syracuse and in Sarasota, Fla.
