Snellings celebrate 50 years together

May 2022 Posted in People

California boy steals Ohio farm girl’s heart after some intense pursuing. 50-plus years later their friends and family are celebrating the marriage of Le and Ann (Gregg) Snelling at their home on May 21 with a drop-in reception from 1-4 p.m. 

They met at Cincinnati Bible College and wed in 1972 at Palmyra Church of Christ in Fredericktown, Ohio. Graduating in 1974, they returned to Le’s hometown of Escondido, California. Le worked for his dad and later began his own cabinet shop, Snelling Wood Specialties, in 1979. Ann taught piano lessons and worked in the music department at Palomar College. Their hearts rejoiced in 1980 with the adoption of their two boys, Doug and David. 

The 1990s drew them to Silverton where Le started Snelling & Co. as a general contractor. Ann continued her music as a professional piano accompanist at Willamette University and Festival Chorale Oregon. Their generous hearts value friendships and fun, and they devote themselves to caring for others. They remain active in Toastmasters, woodworking education, and Willamette Agate and Mineral Club. 

Friends are invited to celebrate this milestone with them. Contact Michelle at [email protected] for more info.
