Arnie and Joyce Bries were married 50 years ago, Feb. 20, 1971, in SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Petersburg. Their family has grown with their children and grandchildren: Brian and Maria Bries, with Lauren and Christian; Amy and Travis Priem, with Tyler (Katie Meyers) and Chezney; Deborah Sue Bries, our angel in Heaven; Bill and Ann Bries, with Jordan, Jaci, Levi and Tate; Katie and Kyle Palmer, with Derek; and Lynn and Steve Schmitt, with Brody and Mason. We will celebrate once it is safe to do so.
