PRATT 50th: Jay and Laraine Pratt of Idaho Falls will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012.

Both Jay and Laraine graduated from Idaho Falls High School.

Jay worked many years at the DOE site managing several cafeteria venues, and Laraine taught piano back in the 1970s and stayed home as a wonderful mother and housewife.

For the past 16 years, they have worked together as private contractors managing the cafeteria at Eastern Idaho Technical College.

Together, they took up the sport of golf and became actively involved in the golf associations at the local golf courses in Idaho Falls. In recent years, they have enjoyed taking short trips together to visit family and friends. Jay still enjoys a good round of golf and puttering in his yard, proving he truly has a green thumb. Laraine has always enjoyed and has a knack for decorating the house, especially during the holidays.

The Pratts' children are Secia (Ben) Taylor of Whitefish, Mont., and Justin (Shannon) Pratt of Idaho Falls. They have five granddaughters and three grandsons.
