Sixty years ago, on Aug. 2, 1953, Dr. Douglas Shumway wed Christine Kesling of Elkins at the First United Methodist Church with the Rev. Ross Culpepper officiating. They met while students at Davis & Elkins College.
Mrs. Shumway is the daughter of the late Flossie C. Kesling and Harley C. Kesling, originally of Davis Street in Elkins.
They settled in Middleville, Mich., more than 50 years ago where Dr. Shumway, now retired, had a smalltown family medicine practice for decades.
They are the parents of Julie (Christopher) Walters of Middleville, Mich., Lee (Lydia Scott, formerly of Elkins) Shumway and Stacy (Frank) Scutch of Grand Rapids, Mich.
