Jeff and Carol Thatcher of Van Wert will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Thursday, July 23.
The couple was married in Van Wert on July 23, 1965. Longtime residents of Van Wert, the Thatchers spent more than 50 years as farmers. They retired a couple of years ago and now enjoy traveling to new places, antiquing and spending time with their family and friends and their special cat, Sparky.
Their faith, family and friends bring much joy to their lives.
They are the proud parents of Derek (Jessie) Thatcher of Plain City.
Be sure to wish them a happy golden anniversary.
