Wally and Joanne take the cake

-A +A
Sixty years find Wally and Joanne Johnson cutting another cake in the same house on Shockley Road where they had held their wedding reception. The couple married in Sacramento April 21, 1948. They lived in Santa Clara and the Campbell area for 12 years before returning to Auburn in 1960. Mr. Johnson worked for Sierra Air Conditioning until 1981 and was a real estate agent for Placer Land until 1995. Mrs. Johnson retired from county service in 1987. They returned to the Auburn area 48 years ago and bought from family the Minton “Homestead.” Their three surviving children threw them a surprise 60th anniversary party on April 19, 2008, at home attended by more than 45 relatives. Their children are Kristina (Johnson) Kenoyer of Benicia, Brian Johnson of San Rafael, and Tom Johnson of Fresno.
