Barbara and Jerry Holt of Gainesville will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary May 24 at the home of their daughter and son-in-law in Utah, where they will be joined by 25 other relatives and friends from throughout the country. Barbara Jeanne Thompson was born in Maine, and Jerry Lee Holt was born in Arkansas. They both grew up in California and spent most of their adult lives there until moving to Gainesville after they retired. They were married May 24, 1958, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Bakersfield, California, and spent their honeymoon sightseeing in San Francisco, where they also saw a stage production of the “King and I.” While they were on their honeymoon, the Holts met a couple who were marking their 50th wedding anniversary and said they would soon be taking an Alaskan cruise to celebrate. Barbara thought that sounded romantic and wonderful. On their 50th anniversary, the Holts’ children treated them to a cruise to Alaska, which they enjoyed. They have two children, four grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.
