Higley Celebrates 90th

Linda and Thomas Myers

Thomas and Linda Porter Myers of Wheeling are celebrating 50 years of marriage. They were high school sweethearts and lived across the street from each other. They were united in marriage on Sept. 27, 1969, at Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Warwood.

Linda is the daughter of the late Norma Jean Taylor and John E. Porter. She is retired from Ohio County School where she was an educator for over 30 years.

Tom is the son of the late Harvey and Rita Myers. He is a U.S. Army veteran and retired from American Electric Power after 41 years.

They are the parents of two children: a son, Bryan, and his wife Melany; and a daughter, Karen Yocum and her husband Scott. They have three granddaughters, Bryn Yocum, and Adyn and Lakyn Myers.

A celebration of their marriage was held this past weekend at Oglebay Park.
