Celebrating 50 years of joy, humor and love... Bob and Sheri (Haugland) Erickson


Sheri and Bob Erickson - then and now

Although the recollection of who noticed whom first is a little hazy (depending on who’s telling the story), it took only three dates to realize they had found “The One.” After high school, Sheri attended Wartburg College in Waverly and Bob went on to Winona State in Winona, MN. Just one semester in and one all-night hitchhiking trip to see Sheri, and Bob soon left Winona State to join her at Wartburg. Two years later, August 24, 1968, they were married at First Lutheran Church in Cresco - the same church they both attended in seventh grade.
