Observing their 50th wedding anniversary in August are Bill and "Joy" Evans, of Nevada. Bill Evans and the former Janette "Joy" Long were married Aug. 30, 1956, in Altus, Okla. After eight years in the Air Force, the Evans settled in Nevada and have lived at the same residence since.
The couple are the parents of four children, Debbie, who lives in rural Moundville; Danita, who lives in Nevada; Barbara, of Portales, N.M.; and Billy Jr., who lives in Escondido, Calif. They are grandparents 11 times over.
There are no plans at this time for a celebration.
