Tommy and Wanda Stanton of Shady Grove, Ark., celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with their daughters and family the weekend of Aug. 9, in Hot Springs (a place where many of their cherished family memories have been made). Their church family at Bono Baptist Church also honored them with a reception on Aug. 18, after the evening services. They have been active members of the church for more than 50 years.
Tommy and Wanda (White) were married by the Rev. John Burke on Aug. 13, 1963, in Winona, Miss.
The couple has two children, Stacy (Stanton) Stroud and Amanda Stanton, and two grandchildren, Trey Pratt and Daniel Stroud.
Tommy has been in business in Conway for more than 50 years, with more than 40 of those years being in the milk business. Tommy is still self-employed as a milk distributor. Wanda retired in January of 2012 from the accounting business after 28 years.
So many memories, so much love, so very blessed!
