Port Royal couple celebrates 70 years of marriage

Many happy congrats go out to longtime Port Royal residents, Jim & Jeanette Pearce, who celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary today, Wednesday, July 24th. They are longtime residents of the Shell Point community, and currently reside at Helena House in Port Royal.

Mr. Pearce is a retired Marine Lt. Colonel, WWII veteran and well-known Beaufort school principal.  Mrs. Pearce was CEO of their household.

Together they raised six daughters, 15 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and one great great-grandchild.

We should all wish to be as fortunate, and as amazing, as the Pearces.
