On August 14, 1948, Patsy Marie Kothmann and Donald Boyce Ziriax were united in marriage during a beautiful garden ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Clarence P. Kothmann, in Mason, Texas. They have lived all of their married lives in Mason, and together raised four children, Donna Kay, Kathy Louise, Timothy John and Clarence Patrick. They have eight grandchildren, Cara, Julie, Mandy, Carrie, Will, Jessica, Bobby Don and Linsey, and one great granddaughter, Hope London Ogle.
Recently, the couple’s children and their families gathered in San Antonio to celebrate Donald and Patsy’s 60 wonderful years of marriage. The celebration began with a dinner cruise on the historic San Antonio Riverwalk and the rest of the weekend was spent laughing, eating, and reminiscing. Everyone had such a wonderful time just being together and honoring the love and the many years of happy marriage that these two have shared.
