Ed and Barbara Jacobs are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Edwin Scott Jacobs and Barbara Jo Davenport were married Aug. 22, 1964, at Trinity United Methodist Church in Kelso with the Rev. Ludvig Eskildsen officiating.

The couple moved to Bellingham where Barbara, having graduated from the University of Washington, taught at Meridian High School and Ed finished his education at West Washington University and was on the track team for the Vikings. In 1966 they moved to Sequim to teach in the Sequim School District until they retired. Ed also coached middle school basketball and high school track.

They have two daughters, Jana and Jill, and have three grandchildren, Carlie, Jacob and Madeline.

After retiring, Ed worked as a painting contractor, owning Merit Painting, and Barbara was a sales associate for McHugh Realtors. Now they enjoy traveling, fishing, golfing, gardening, clamming and crabbing.

In celebration, they are planning a trip to Sedona, Ariz., and the Grand Canyon.
