Hiatt, Duckworth announce plans to marry June 29

Some are granted the blessing of loving deeply only once in a lifetime. For a few, that blessing happens twice.

William J. Duckworth and Mary L. Hiatt proudly announce their engagement and upcoming wedding. Mary is the widowed wife of Mickey Dawes, CEO of Wildcatter Records. Mary has been employed for the past six years as a family nurse practitioner at Graham Medical Associates, and has been in the medical field for over 30 years with a background in Oncology Hematology. As a commander in the United States Navy, she was recently selected for a promotion to captain, serving in the Expeditionary Medicine Unit One, Dallas. 

William (Bill) is the operations manager at Southern Bleacher where he has worked for the past 36 years. Bill is the widowed husband of Liz Duckworth. They were married for 45 years. He has four children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Mary and Bill met 10 years ago when Liz was a patient where Mary practiced as oncology nurse practitioner. Liz and Mickey met and became fast friends, sharing many stories, laughter and tears while receiving chemotherapy.

At the suggestion of Bill’s youngest daughter, the couple finally had their first date. They have been at a fast gallop ever since, quickly falling in love.

Their marriage ceremony, officiated by Rev. Charlie Bazan, will be June 29, 2013. The honeymoon and marriage celebration will take place in the Florida Keys, accompanied by Bill’s children and grandchildren.
