On Friday Aug. 15, Howard and Betty Parrish of Camp Verde will celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. The couple met in Wittier, Calif., and married in Monticello, Calif., in 1948. Betty, whose maiden name was McDonald, was born and raised in Camp Verde. Howard was born in Oklahoma and moved to California with his family during the Depression. They lived briefly in Camp Verde after being married but returned to California within a year in search of a job. They eventually moved back in 1956 and have remained here ever since. Howard will be the grad marshal for this years' Fort Verde Day parade.
