50 years: William and Carolyn Weikert

William and Carolyn Weikert of Jasper are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.

William Weikert and Carolyn Fleck were married Oct. 3, 1970, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jasper.

Bridesmaids were Alice (Hief) Deer, Sheila (Seger) Collett, Ruth (Matheis) Hunt, Alfi Benages, and sisters of the bride Donna Schmitt and Marilyn Schmitt. Groomsmen were Don Schneider (standing in for Ron Lottes), Jim Rees, Paul Stivers, Gregg Sturm, Alan Schmitt, Ken Schmitt, brother of the bride Dan Fleck and brother of the groom Dean Weikert.

Mrs. Weikert both raised her daughters and volunteered for several local and national charities, including the American Heart Association, Tri Kappa and the Dubois County Democratic Party. She retired in 2010 from the Dubois County Prosecutor's Office.

After serving as county prosecutor for 18 years and three terms as judge, Judge Weikert retired from Dubois Circuit Court in 2014 to Senior Judge status, continuing to serve in several counties as needed.

The couple are the parents of Emily (Jonathan) Bryant of Indianapolis; Katherine Weikert of Winchester, England, and her fiance, Keir Waddington of Cardiff, Wales. William and Carolyn have two grandchildren.

They will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Zoom with their daughters, son-in-law, future son-in-law and grandchildren.
