Fischers Celebrate 68th Anniversary


George and Betty Fischer George and Betty Fischer George “Mickey” and Betty (Ward) Fischer celebrated 68 years of marriage with a surprise dinner March 11, 2018, with their family at Keystone Family Restaurant in Waynesboro.

Mickey and Betty were married March 11, 1950, in Hagerstown, Md. They are the parents of five children: Gary, husband of Barb; Roger, Larry, Diane Whiteside, wife of Mike, all of Warfordsburg; and Karen Brennan, wife of Garry, Chambersburg.

They are blessed with 14 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Mickey still enjoys hunting and going to the barn when weather permits, and Betty still makes her famous macaroni and cheese and homemade pies for family celebrations. They have been through good times and bad but have maintained their faith in God and always put their family first.

Owners of Keystone Family Restaurant, who met Mickey and Betty for the first time the day of the celebration, graciously provided their meal at no cost as a tribute to their 68 years of marriage.
