Mr. and Mrs. D. Rex Mansfield (Elisabeth Stefaniak) of Sevierville will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary June 6 with their church and friends with a reception from 2-4 p. m. in the parlor at First Baptist Church, Sevierville. No gifts please.
They were married on June 4, 1960, in Dresden, following Rex’s two years of service in the US Army, where he served with the late Elvis Presley as one of the Rock and Roller’s best friends.
Elisabeth was a 19-year-old German girl who met Elvis in Grafenwohr, Germany, in late 1958 and shortly thereafter became his private secretary for the next 18 months. Rex and Elisabeth fell in love during this time and were married after Rex’s discharge from the US Army in March 1960.
Rex and Elisabeth have written a book titled “Sergeant Presley” covering their time spent with Elvis and their books are on sale at the Elvis Museum in Sevierville.
Rex retired from Time Manufacturing Company of Waco, Texas, in 1998 as export manager. Elisabeth has always been and continues to be a homemaker.
The couple has one son, Don Mansfield Jr., who now resides in Sevierville.wcp 5-25-10
