Special to the Herald

The children of John and Patsy Campbell have planned a Dec. 12 celebration to honor their parents 50th wedding anniversary. John Campbell and the former Patsy Whitworth were married Dec. 12, 1954, in the Moundville home of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil McKenzie by the Rev. G.W. Corporon.

Mr. and Mrs. Campbell have always resided in Nevada and both are now retired. He from the grocery business, most recently Wood's Supermarket, and she from the Nevada R-5 School District Food Service. He now enjoys woodworking as a hobby and she crocheting and reading. The Campbells are the parents of Greg Campbell, Richards, Mo., Nicole and Allison Campbell, Richards, and Gina Whitlock and Andrew Whitlock, both of El Dorado Springs.

The anniversary celebration will take place from 1:30 to 4 p.m. at the United Methodist Church, 500 S. College, Nevada. The family noted that your presence is the best gift the Campbells could receive, and in lieu of your presence, a card or written memory shared with them would be a treasured gift. The omission of any other gift is requested.
