Carol and Art Peterson, of Grand Junction, Colorado, and formerly of Billings, marked their 60th anniversary.
Carol Siqueido and Art Peterson were married May 26, 1957, in Los Angeles. Within a few months of the wedding, he was drafted by the U.S. Army. During his service, they lived in Georgia and Oklahoma.
They later moved to California, where she was a homemaker and he was employed by S.H. Kress & Co. They lived in Greeley, Colorado, where their first son was born in 1962; Ogden, Utah, where their second son was born in 1964; and Pueblo, Colorado, where their daughter was born in 1970.
They lived in Billings from 1969 to 2002, where he was a developer in the merchandise department at Kampgrounds of America. One of his first duties in the new and growing organization included composing a catalog for KOA franchise owners. Art was eventually named president at KOA, and they traveled around the world while he served for 20 years in that role, before retiring. He also served on the board of St. Vincent and with the Lutheran center for families, the symphony and the art museum.
Upon his retirement, they moved to Rancho Mirage, California, and, after the birth of their granddaughter, to Minnesota. They settled in Grand Junction in 2013.
Their children and daughter-in-law are Bryan and Carina Peterson, of Prior Lake, Minn.; and Curtis Peterson and Kris Mort, both of Grand Junction.
They have five grandchildren and one great-grandchildren.
