LONGEVITY MARRIED 50 YEARS: BOB AND DALLAS CHASE.

Byline: - Simone Schramm

Bob and Dallas Chase of Granada Hills celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a surprise party with family and friends on Aug. 27 at their home. The party featured four themes representing countries they have lived in: Japan, China, Mexico and Australia. Each area featured food and beverages from that country, and each guest received ``passports'' as souvenirs. The couple also acknowledged their anniversary with a yearlong celebration of monthly overnight stays in places that carried special significance in their lives, including Monterey Park, Zion National Park and Catalina Island. They recently took a trip to Seattle as well.

Bob and Dallas were high-school sweethearts in Inglewood. They married several years later, after Bob returned from service in Japan during the Korean War.

Dallas graduated from Inglewood High School in 1949. She was a member of the Women Painters West, the Valley Art Guild and College Artists of America. She has won numerous awards for her art.

Bob graduated with a bachelor's degree from Pepperdine University in 1952, and a master's degree in English from the University of Southern California. He retired from Pierce College as dean of academic affairs and has taught on U.S. Navy ships in Japan, China, Mexico and Australia.

Their six children are Tom Nixon of San Francisco, Michael Nixon of Napa Valley, Robin Chase of Sebastopol, Kathy Landkammer of Rancho Cucamonga, Sandra Landkammer of Seattle and Karen Drenner of Palmdale. They also have eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
