THE FAMILY ALBUM: My parents’ wedding anniversary

April 4th, 1964, my parents, Diana Kay Barmes and Danny Lee Jolliff, were married at Trinity Evangelical United Brethren Church (to become Trinity United Methodist Church, 1968) in Elwood, Indiana.

Rev. Roush led the ceremony with Dorothea Woods as the organ, and my great aunt, Loris Stack Richardson (married to my father’s uncle, Charles Richardson) was the soloist.

My parents’ attendants were Judy Smith (Hallett), my mother’s cousin, and Sandy Gordon (Tucker), my mother’s best friend, Jan Goodwin and Dick Burnett, were the groomsmen for my father.

My cousin, Bruce Richardson, under the ever watchful eye of his mother, Lois, was the comedian and ring bearer. I cannot recall if there was a flower girl. My mother’s younger brothers were the acolytes, and I believe my uncle, Garry Jolliff, was one of the ushers.

Mother wore a gold watch on a chain necklace that belonged to her great-grandmother, Anna Greenlee Jones.
