Rev. Thomas and Sue Matney celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on Friday, June 7, 2019 at the Merry Jeffries Community Center. With their closest friends and relatives present, the celebration included a vow renewal performed by their long-time friend, Rev. Stanley Taylor.
During their 60 years of marriage, they have been blessed with three children: Mary Ann Hughes (Tommy), Donna Bunch (Dennis) and Tommy Matney (Deanna).
They have six grandchildren, Kristy Ann Brown (Russell), Joshua Matney (Julie-Beth), Breanna Bunch, Lauren Matney, Christian Ross, Isaac Matney and a great-grandson, Caleb Brown.
When asked their secret to 60 years of wedded bliss, they replied, “It’s no secret. It’s simple, finding and following God!”
