Bruce and Mary Alice Carswell of Davis celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Sept. 14, 2013.
The couple enjoyed a celebration planned by two of their daughters at The Buckhorn in Winters. Attending were their family and friends visiting from the Bay Area and Nevada.
The Carswells were married in Sacramento in 1963 and moved around quite a bit due to Bruce’s job as a colonel in the U.S. Army. In 1971, the couple settled down in Davis. Mary Alice is a retired teacher’s aide.
They now have four children: Catherine Carumpton of Los Gatos, Sarah Franko of San Francisco, Elizabeth Madigan of McLean, Va., and Lt. Col. Bruce Carswell Jr. of Bulgaria. The Carswells also have four grandchildren.
