Len and Cindy Wardlaw of Delta were married on July 19, 1969, at the University Christian Church in Wichita, Kansas. Len, a Paonia native, had served in the Air Force and worked for The Yard Store, and Cindy was a registered nurse at Wesley Medical Center.
Their two children, Aaron and Amy, were born in Wichita. The Wardlaws returned to Colorado and moved to the Crystal River Valley where they raised their children. A few years after Mid Continent Coal and Coke closed its mine near Redstone, Len and Cindy returned to Delta County.
Both are now retired but they keep active with family who live nearby and with community activities. A reception will be held from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, July 21, at the Delta Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 477 Meeker Street. Please come celebrate with them.
