Kenneth and Patricia Siegesmund will soon celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

They are the grandparents of Erin Everett, Samantha and Lily Engel, and Lauren, Ben and Emily Siegesmund.
Kenneth is a retired associate professor from the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Patricia is a retired program director from Bethany United Methodist Church.
The couple has dedicated their lives to serving God, the church and those in need.
