Eugene and Margaret Greier of Leetonia recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Friday, with their children and grandchildren hosting a surprise party in their honor on Nov. 20 at the St. Patrick Church social hall in Leetonia.
The former Margaret Mary Potts and Mr. Greier were joined in holy matrimony on Feb. 10, 1962 at St. Paul Catholic Church in Salem with Rev. Richard Gaffney officiating.
Mr. Greier retired in 2000 from J.E.S. Technology in Columbiana after 27 years as a machinist. He previously worked at Dan Dee in Leetonia and served three years in the U.S. Army, graduating from Leetonia High School in 1956.
Mrs. Greier retired in 2003 after working 23 years as a cook for the Leetonia Village School District. She previously worked at the G.C. Murphy Co. in downtown Salem and graduated from Salem High School in 1957.
They enjoy spending time with their two granddaughters, Kayla and Morgan, and attending their various athletic and school events. They also spend a lot of time camping at Berlin Lake in the summer.
They are the parents of three children, Mary Ann Greier and Tony Greier, both of Leetonia, and Barbara (Rob) Hovorka of Salem. Besides their two granddaughters, they also have an honorary grandson, Corey Creamer, of Leetonia.
