Newsoms celebrate 50th anniversary


EDMOND —     Jr. and Sheri Newsom of Edmond, Okla., marked their 50th wedding anniversary on January 7, 2014.

    Elmer A. Newsom Jr. and Beverly Sheri Rhea were married January 7, 1964 at the Noble Avenue Baptist Church in Guthrie, Okla.

    They met in 1962 in the old downtown Edmond Brocho Theatre after Jr. caught Sheri’s attention by throwing popcorn in her hair.

    Several years later, their first son was born in the hospital located upstairs of the theater.

    The couple has lived in their Edmond home for 43 years, where they have raised their children and made many wonderful memories together.

    They are members of Waterloo Nazarene Church where they raised their children.

    Jr. and Sheri are the proud parents of three children: John Newsom, Angela Newsom Tackett and Joe Newsom, all of Edmond. They cherish

their six granddaughters, one grandson, and two great-grandsons and enjoy taking them on outings.

    The couple will be honored at a celebration hosted by their children and grandchildren.

    Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom and Dad! We love and appreciate you each and every day. Love, John, Joe and Angie.
