Jerry and Judy (Armstrong) Witt are celebrating their 50th anniversary today. They were married Saturday, Aug. 25, 1962, in the First Christian Church in Fort Scott by the Rev. Jim Grooms.

The Witts note that their faith, love, and commitment to each other have brought them many blessings over the past 50 years. They have five sons, Matt and wife Cherie, Aaron and wife Heather, Jared and wife Stephanie, Jordan and wife Randi, and Luke and wife Cherie. Their nine "precious" grandchildren are Henry, Oliver, Remy, Ivan, Ava, Lydia, Jack, Cole, and Jayden.

Earlier this summer the family enjoyed a trip to Branson together. They will celebrate today with a family dinner hosted by their sons and wives. Later this fall the couple is planning a trip to Hawaii.
