Charles and Mabel Brown

Longtime Downey residents Charles and Mabel Brown are celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. They met in Logan, Utah, when their seventh grade English teacher seated her class alphabetically. Their friendship grew and blossomed into love and they were married in the Logan LDS Temple May 9, 1941. After four years in the Army and the birth of their daughter, Linda, Charles and Mabel settled in Hawthorne, where Charles began working for the Southern California Gas Company. They moved to Downey in 1958 and have resided here since. ********** Published: May 5, 2011 - Volume 10 - Issue 3
