Donald and Sharon Dobbs are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary.
Don was born and raised in the Weatherford area. Early in life, he met Sharon, who was raised in Poolville. They married Feb. 6, 1964, and have been lifelong Poolville residents.
Both Don and Sharon have worked at Willhite Seed Company most of their adult lives. The couple raised their family in Poolville, where they supplemented their incomes with a farming operation in which they grew watermelons, cantaloupes, peanuts and hay for many years. The farming endeavor was a team effort and allowed the family to grow together and learn many life lessons that are greatly appreciated and valued today.
Don is currently the pastor of Oak Tree Baptist Church, where he and Sharon worship and love the Lord together.
The Dobbs’ have two children, Jimmie Dobbs and Denna Berry, both residing in Poolville. Jimmie and wife, Dana, have two children, Courtney Dobbs and Ian Dobbs. Denna and husband, Brian, have two children, Sarah Berry and Blake Berry.
A celebration of their enduring love is 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 9, at the Zion Hill Community Center.
