Youngs Celebrate 50th

Michael and Carol Young of Glen Dale celebrated their 50th anniversary on Saturday.

They were united in marriage on June 3, 1967, at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church with the Rev. Father Robert E. Lee officiating at the double ring ceremony.

Carol L. Young is the daughter of the late John and Rose Voyda. She is a 1963 graduate of Wheeling High School, a 1968 graduate of West Liberty State College, and a 1983 graduate of West Virginia University. She retired from Marshall County Schools in 2005 after serving as the guidance counselor at Sherrard Junior High.

Michael D. Young is the son of the late Alvin and Mary Young. He graduated from Wheeling High School in 1963 and from West Liberty in 1968. He served two years in the Army during the Vietnam War. He retired from State Farm Insurance Co. in 2003 after working as an independent insurance agent in South Wheeling.

They are the parents of one daughter Michelle (Mario) Vidikan of Xenia, Ohio. Two grandchildren complete the family.

A family trip is being planned for later this summer to celebrate their anniversary.
