Jeanne and Ken Colvin

They were high school sweethearts and were married Aug. 10, 1957, at the Lutheran Church in Troy, Idaho, one year before Ken graduated from the University of Idaho.

They came to the Mid-Columbia in 1972 when Ken took a job at Grigg’s Department Store in Pasco. Later Ken went on to be an agent for Farmers Insurance Company. He retired in 2001 after 25 years.
Jeanne is a homemaker and has been involved with her kids’ activities, which included many PTAs, 4-H clubs and county fairs.
