Peschel, 56 years

March 27, 2014

James and Delores Peschel, residents of West Allis for 49 years, celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary.

The couple married Oct. 12, 1957, at St. Mary's.

Children of the couple are Kris (Jeff) Multhauf of Brookfield and Carol (Al) Lee of West Allis. Grandchildren are Melanie, Stephen, Sara, Spencer and Stewart.

James is a retired deputy director of 23 years at the Milwaukee County Parks System and Delores was a stay-at-home mother.

The couple met Jan 6, 1956, on a cold and blustery day. Delores went with friends to a favorite Carroll College hangout where she met James. After an evening of conversation, Delores was about to leave when she put on her "stylish" coat and scarf attracting James, who pulled her out of the bar by the scarf and kissed her for the first time.
