LONG BEACH - L.F. "Swede" and Carole Warneke celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 8, 2007, with traveling companions at the Kismet Hotel overlooking the Aegean Sea in Kusadasi, Turkey. This venue was chosen because they had missed their 25th anniversary when Mr. Warneke was sent to Adana, Turkey to work facilities problems for Boeing at the nearby NATO airbase in 1982.
