Carlos and Carmen Perea, of Los Lunas, are celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary. The Pereas were married on Sept. 24, 1957, in Albuquerque.

Carlos is retired after being self employed with owning hay trucks and race horses. He enjoys gardening. Carmen is a housewife, and spent 30 years as a Mary Kay consultant. She enjoys doing embroidery.

The Pereas are members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Valencia. They have three children, including Ray Cadena and his wife, Mary Stella Perea, of Albuquerque; Clarence Perea and his wife, Sylvia Ann McElroy, of Albuquerque; and Carlos Mark Perea (deceased). They also have five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

The Pereas will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary quietly with all their family.

“My husband, Carlos, has been the best husband, the best father, the best grandfather and the best great-grandfather,” Carmen says. “That’s why we’ve stayed together for so long.”
