Emil and Joni Schukar are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary. Emil Schukar and the former Joni Hummer met in high school and was married June 7, 1969 at St Paul’s Catholic Church in Marion, Indiana. Emil graduated from Marion High School in 1967 and Joni graduated from Bennet High School in 1969.

After 20 years of service, they relocated to their current home in Albuquerque, New Mexico where Emil worked as a Civilian Contractor at Kirtland AFB. Joni went on to complete her business degree and returned to banking with Wells Fargo, retiring in 2012.
