ELKHART — Ed and Jan (Byington) Mast are celebrating their 40th anniversary this month.
They were married on Aug. 10, 1974, at the home of the Rev. Elias Sarber in Nappanee. He had previously married her great-grandparents and her parents, Bob and Dolly Byington, in 1954.
After many years doing office work, Mrs. Mast became a full-time grandma when the couple’s granddaughter was born in April 2010. Mr. Mast retired from the post office at the end of 2012 so he could be a full-time grandpa.
They will celebrate their anniversary by taking their granddaughter, Quinn, on a trip to Ludington, Mich., next month.
They have one son, Erik (Michelle) Mast, of Elkhart.
