United in Marriage - May 19, 1945

Our parents, Bertha Ottylie Peplau and Byron Leibold Reppert, were united in marriage on this day, 70 years ago. Mom married a proud Marine at a very simple ceremony in Reading, PA as the war was winding down. There was no fancy wedding gown or elaborate cake. Over the years, they were blessed with four daughters and celebrated 54 years of wedded bliss together. Each brought their strengths and weaknesses to the union, but their love for each other and their girls was evident with their mutual respect and their devotion to family.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad! We love you, and miss you.
Note: This photo was taken in the tea room in 1998.

It was your Mother's book..."The Business of Herbs" and another little Herb Booklet I purchased that started me on a mission to learn more and more about herbs and their uses. She started a uniqueness that still is going strong today. Wish I could have met her. You girls are very blessed indeed!
