  • John and Elke Milne celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary March 29, 2013, with family and friends.
    John Milne married Elke Krauss March 29, 1963, in Gelnhausen, Germany, where John served three years with the U.S. Army's 3rd Armored Division. Elke was born in Gelnhausen, and John was born and raised in Medford. The couple have one son, Rick Milne, and wife, Connie, of Eagle Point; a daughter, Nicole Ripplinger, and husband, Mike, of Medford; two grandchildren, Calen Ripplinger (17) and Ashley Ripplinger (13).
    Elke worked for the Medford School District and was a nanny for numerous Medford physicians for nearly 30 years. John worked in banking and the auto industry before owning his own business for 22 years and retiring in 1999.
    In their free time, they enjoy RVing, watching their grandkids play sports and taking short trips. John restores garage sale finds, works in his shop and is a volunteer driver for Food and Friends. Elke has returned to Germany several times to visit her family and friends.
