A nice dinner at Fisher Lake Inn with family is how Jesse and Sandra (Sandy) Rochholz celebrated 60 years of marriage. They met in fourth grade in Schoolcraft schools when Jesse’s family moved from Mattawan. Sandy was a Schoolcraft native, the daughter of Paul Sims, who owned PS Tavern. They were married at the Schoolcraft United Methodist Church on April 20, 1958.
Both attended Kalamazoo Valley Community College to become accountants. He worked for Custom Farm Services south of Schoolcraft; Sandy spent 26 years with Quality Films. She did volunteer stints as an accountant for Little Lambs Nursery School and Schoolcraft Ambulance Service before it was combined with Vicksburg. She also spent 14 years as Schoolcraft Village treasurer.
They are very proud of their adult children who also volunteer in the community. They are Mike and Brenda Rochholz, Roy and Rosie Rochholz, Dena and Steve Holman, all of Schoolcraft. Paula and Bob Beckman live near Cincinnati, Ohio. They have produced seven grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
