Jackie and Jim Travis of Rehoboth celebrate 70th anniversary

June 27, 2020

On May 20, 2020, Mr. and Mrs. James Travis Jr. of Rehoboth Beach, affectionately known to their many friends as Jim and Jackie, celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary.

They are joined in this celebration by their four boys, eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. Their meeting in 1950 was a classic case of Rehoboth boy meets Lewes girl.

Even after almost three-quarters of a century, one can still see an adolescent sparkle in Jim’s smile as he recalls that meeting. He never tires of relating how on that day on the Rehoboth Boardwalk, he spotted Jackie and said, “I’m going to marry that girl.”
