Happy 28th Wedding Anniversary Todd, Sarah Palin – Ron Devito
This day 28 years ago, Todd Palin married his high school sweetheart, young Sarah Heath. Their union brought five children and three grandchildren. Each Palin Wedding Anniversary provides those who are willing to learn a model of how marriages should work. The Palins’ marriage is founded on respect, love, team work, and support, as is the marriage of the Heaths. In an era where appliance warranties often outlast marriages, the Palins offer a rare positive role model to look up to and emulate.
Not too well known, but two days before their marriage, another woman – the sea – almost killed Todd Palin. This was likely the impetus that drove them to expedite their marriage.
As we enter their 28th Wedding Anniversary, the staff of US for Palin wish the Palins many more years of happiness and fulfillment.
The Alaska Veterans and Pioneer Home is where Todd Palin and Sarah Heath got two witnesses so their wedding in the Palmer Courthouse could proceed.
According to a historian at the Palmer Visitor’s Center, the Tree of Life Nursery was Palmer’s courthouse for many years. It is quite likely the building in which Todd Palin and Sarah Heath were married. It is, however, next door to the Alaska Veterans and Pioneer Home, not across the street as documented in Going Rogue.
The Alaska Bible College is diagonally across the street from the Alaska Veterans and Pioneer Home, but the Palmer Visitors Center historian said the building was never used as a court house.
One of the Palins’ first houses was on Wasilla Lake across from this park.
