Dun — 50th
On Oct. 13, 2013, Laurel and Angus “Terry” Dun of Shelburne celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at Fellowship Hall in Shelburne Center with a reception. They shared this occasion with their daughter and son-in-law, Paula and Brian Brault of Northfield, Mass., for their 25th wedding anniversary. Their son and daughter-in-law, Aaron and Sarah Dun of Arlington, Mass., and three grandchildren, Lillian and Aidan Dun of Arlington, Mass., and Sarah Brault of Northfield, Mass., and Smith College participated as well. Other guests came from Mass., Calif., Md., Va., Fla. and District of Columbia. The cake was made by their daughter, Paula Brault. The Grange Feast Committee catered the reception.
Angus and Laurel were married Nov. 10, 1963 at Temple Sinai, Glendale, Calif. They proceeded to cross the country to Angus’ next Navy duty station in Newport, R.I., arriving there the day that President Kennedy was shot, a memorable way to start married life.
In 1974, after 11 years of moving eight times and living in four states, they settled in Shelburne to raise their family, which by then included daughter, Paula, born at Otis Air Force Base, Mass., and son, Aaron, born in Nashua, N.H.
For the last 40 years they have enjoyed living and working in western Mass. Angus retired from Franklin County Tech School as Technology Coordinator, Town of Shelburne as Selectman and Shelburne Volunteer Fire Department as Fire Chief. He continues with the Northwest Mass Incident Management Team and his genealogy research.
Laurel, a retired accountant, worked at many non-profit organizations, retiring from Franklin County Home Care Corp. as auditor after 16 years. Laurel continues her art and needlework as Chair of the Shelburne Grange Competitive Exhibit at the Franklin County Fair. She is a 47-year member of the Girl Scouts.
They are both members of the Grange as well as having participated as adults in 4-H, Girl and Boy Scouts, local basketball programs, Temple Israel and vacation trips here and abroad.
