Wally and Jackie Gottinger of Eagle Point celebrated their 70th anniversary July 10.
Wally worked for Kinney Shoes for more than 30 years before opening two shoe stores of his own in Santa Maria, California. He and Jackie retired in 1985 and moved to Medford in order to live “in between” their children distance-wise. They spent many happy years with family while traveling, camping and crabbing along the Oregon Coast.
Wally and Jackie have three children, Carolyn Hein of Eagle Point; Jill Russell of Hillsboro; and Bruce Gottinger of Hollister, California. They also have two grandchildren, Rene Russell of Seattle, Washington, and Carrie Russell of Portland.
