Ryans wed 70 years Paul Ryan and the former Billie Satterwhite of Coloma were married June 25, 1949 at Hartford, Michigan. Their son Greg and his fiancée Sandy came from Denver, Colorado to be with them for their anniversary. Paul has been a farmer all his life. Billie was owner and operator of her own beauty shop for 20 years. They were snow birds for many years to Florida where he loved to fish and she got plenty of reading and relaxation done. They are thankful to still be together and blessed to continue to enjoy their home. And grateful for the friends and relatives and medical team who are always there to help with that.
