Wayne and the former Diane Durr were married July 27, 1968, at the United Methodist Church at Merrill by the Rev. Dwight Garrington. The couple lived at Clovis, N.M., for a short time following their marriage and have since live in Le Mars.
They have three children: Jason and his wife Kelli (Van Berkum) and children Mabel and Simon live in Lenexa, Kan.; Nikki and her husband Nick Hoss and their children Abigail and Benjamin reside in Le Mars and Matt Anstine lives in Kansas City, Mo.
The Anstines are both retired. Wayne served with the 185th TFG of the Iowa Air National Guard for 32 years and was employed as an air technician in security at the 185th for 30 years. He now works part-time at Dean Foods. Diane retired this spring after 20 years as a para-educator at Le Mars Community Middle School. She previously worked in the news department at the Le Mars Daily Sentinel for 25 years.
