Martineks to celebrate
Lory and Jim Martinek of Waddell will be celebrating their 50th anniversary June 13.
The couple were married June 13, 1964, in Northbrook, Ill., and have lived in Arizona for more than 30 years.
Mr. Martinek was employed with the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station and then the Arizona prison system. He later worked for the Arizona Industries for the Blind at Luke Air Force Base. Mr. Martinek is retired, and he is a lieutenant for the Goodyear Volunteer Police Department.
Mrs. Martinek was employed in the medical profession for several years, and later worked in real estate. In 2012, she retired as an associate broker. A passion for animals led Mrs. Martinek to volunteer at the Sun Valley Animal Shelter in Glendale.
