Bursons celebrate 50/50
In June 1963, they purchased Delta Resort at the corner of Thunder Lake Road and County Road 440. Then, on Aug. 4, 1963, they were married in Oskaloosa, Iowa after graduating from William Penn University, with Bachelor of Arts degrees in education.
The couple taught in Davenport Iowa Public Schools until their retirement in 1997 when they moved to Manistique.
The couple has two daughters; Dana (Jim) Lafrenz of Walcott, Iowa and Jill (Scott) Wagner of Crystal Falls, Mich. Their seven grandchildren are Debbra, Brandon, Wyatt, Colby, Hannah, Dalaney and Scotty. They have one great-grandson, Kyler.
Over the Fourth of July weekend, the couple celebrated both milestones with 37 family members at the resort.
