Meet your neighbors, Kenneth (Bud) and Carol Sheffler, who have been married for fifty-two years.

Carol has lived in La Harpe most of her life, graduating from La Harpe High School.

Bud lived in Missouri until he was seven years old, then he and his family moved to Illinois. His first two years of high school were spent at Carthage, and then he graduated from Colchester.

They have two children: Cindy (Jim) Oliver, who lives in Beardstown, and Kenny (Nancy) Sheffler, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona. They have three grandchildren: Jesse Little lives in Hamilton and is engaged to Jessica Leffler, Bryant Little lives in Hollywood, California, and Blair Little lives in Rockford.

Bud and Carol also have two great grandkids.

Carol worked at La Harpe Newsland for 19 years and Gene & Bevs for ten years, before retiring.

Bud farmed when he first married Carol, then worked at Champion Spark Plug in Burlington, IA for 32 years, retiring from there.

Bud enjoys going to the high school football, basketball, and baseball games. He likes watching the Cubs and Bears play on TV. Carol likes to do puzzles and read.

Bud and Carol say that La Harpe is a good place to live and to raise your kids.
