Banks 60th Anniversary
William and Evelyn Banks of Carrollton, TX celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on October 3 with their family. They were married in South Bend, Indiana where Evelyn worked for Associates Financial while Bill went to Design Engineering school after serving with the Air Force in the Korean War. A few years out of school, Bill purchased and developed a successful manufacturing company in Iowa. Evelyn managed the front office while raising three children and obtaining her pilots license. Both enjoyed flying their personal planes around the U.S. for business and pleasure.
The company was sold in the late 70's and in the early 80's, with the children out of college, the entire family moved to the Dallas, TX area in search of jobs (and less snow) and have resided here ever since. The Banks' three children are: David Banks and wife Trish of Addison, TX; Judith (Banks Ford) of Lewisville and Sandra (Banks) Bowling and her husband Arlie II of Corinth, TX.
