Shoreline couple Chris and Donna Eggen will celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary on Saturday, June 17, 2017.

Donna Kenney and Chris Eggen met in a Chemistry class at the University of Washington in the Fall of 1965. Their “chemistry” clicked and they married in June of 1967.

Chris joined the Air Force and they briefly lived in Maine and New Jersey.

In 1973, they moved to Shoreline, where they have lived ever since. Here they raised their two children, Brian and Kristy, who still live nearby.

After retirement, he was on the Shoreline City Council for 8 years, and is now finishing 2 years on the Ronald Wastewater Board of Commissioners.

Donna worked as a teacher and secretary. Then she returned to school and became a Licensed Dispensing Optician for 17 years.

She enjoyed going on 13 international missions.

Since retirement, they have enjoyed traveling and hope to do lots more.
