Youngs celebrate 50th anniversary

EDMOND —     Jeff and Kathryn Young of Edmond, Okla., will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary during a reception from 2 - 4 p.m. Saturday, December 8, at First United Methodist Church in Edmond, hosted by their children and grandchildren.

    Jeff D. Young and Kathryn S. Cole met during the summer of 1960, before their senior year in high school. Jeff came from Ardmore to Edmond to spend the summer working with his brother at The Smoke House, a hamburger restaurant on Second Street. Jeff returned to Ardmore to complete his senior year, and he and Kathy wrote each other everyday. After graduation, Jeff returned to Edmond, and he and Kathy attended college and became engaged in February 1962. They were married December 23, 1962 at the First United Methodist Church in Edmond.

    Jeff and Kathy both received their Masters degrees in Education from Central State University.  Jeff retired in 1995 as a counselor from Edmond Memorial, and Kathy retired from teaching in 1995 from Cimarron Middle School to begin daycare for their grandchildren. Jeff is also a self-employed handyman, and together the couple enjoys traveling, fishing, hiking biking and backpacking. Jeff enjoys restoring their first car, a 1947 Ford, purchased in 1962. Kathy also enjoys quilting. The couple walk three to five miles nearly everyday, and are known by many around town as “The Walkers.”

    Jeff and Kathy have two sons, Cole Young, and Bruce Young and his wife Jacque, all of Edmond. They are blessed with two grandchildren, Clarissa and Benjamin Young.

    The Youngs say that they feel blessed to still be members of the church in which they were married; that they still have their sisters and brothers; their wonderful children and grandchildren, and that they have their health and good friends.
