The Lewiston couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary June 14.

Robert Broyles and Marsha Olson were married June 14, 1969, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Clarkston.

Marsha graduated from the University of Washington in 1971 and worked for Pacific Northwest Bell in Lewiston until the office closed in 1982.

Bob served in the U.S. Air Force until October 1968 and moved to Seattle to attend architecture school at the University of Washington. He graduated with his master’s degree in 1973 and moved back to the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley. For brief periods of time, he was in a partnership with Ron Bevans, Jerry Hume and also with Don Bott until he opened up his own practice, RFBA Architecture and Planning. Bob worked all over the state of Washington specializing in school renovation and new school construction. After the PNB closure, Marsha began working for her husband in his architecture office.

Together, the couple enjoy spending time boating on Lake Coeur d’Alene, doing home renovation projects, golfing, traveling and spending time with their four children and their spouses, six grandchildren, two foster grandchildren and many friends.
