Dr. Sander Martin Fields and Mrs. Suzanne C. Fields of Columbia recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married June 25, 1967, in the Whittier Hotel on the Detroit River in Detroit.
“We met 54 years ago at a summer camp in northern Michigan, when I was 17 and my husband was 20,” Suzanne Fields writes. “ ‘Sandy’ and I have been madly in love since the day we met.”
They have two children: Dr. and Mrs. Andrew Jonathan (Rebecca) Fields and Dr. and Mrs. James Michael (Danna) Fields. Their five grandchildren are Player Austin Fields, Parker Jordan Fields, Allie Caroline Fields, Andrew David Fields, and Mary Elizabeth Fields.
They celebrated their anniversary with a special dinner out with family members.
Sander Fields is a retired chiropractic physician and founder of Fields Chiropractic on Devine Street; Suzanne Fields retired after 23 years as an elementary school teacher.
