Ronnie and Bella Jenkauski Celebrate 50th Anniversary


Ronnie and Bella (Ellis) Jenkauski celebrate 50 years of marriage on November 21. They were married at Congregational Church in Bagley, MN in 1970.

They first met at the roller-skating rink, however it was a brief encounter as Ronnie headed off to the service. Bella cut his military announcement out of the paper and knew they would be married someday. Upon returning from the service Ronnie and Bella reconnected and married.

Ronnie was employed as an Electrical Engineer for Montana Dakota Utilities for 33 years. During that time, Ronnie and Bella made homes in Williston, ND, Dickinson, ND, Wolf Point, MT, Sheridan, WY and Bismarck, ND before retiring.

Bella (Ellis) Jenkauski was a stay-at-home mom until her children were in high school. She then worked for the Sheridan Public Library and the North Dakota State Library in Bismarck, ND.

The Jenkauskis have two children; Eric Jenkauski of Sheridan, WY and Kari Jenkauski of Bartlesville, OK. They have five grandchildren-Darian, Jacqi, Jaydi and David Jenkauski of Sheridan, WY and Spencer Solomon of Bartlesville, OK.
