William Yost White and Sandra Beth Proudfoot White

William Yost White and Sandra Beth Proudfoot White recently celebrated 50 years of marriage.

They were joined by family and friends at a party hosted by their daughter Natasha Beth White at the Proudfoot ancestral home on the Proudfoot Williams Road.

Several family members and friends assisted in the preparation of the reception. Natasha White gave an entertaining toast to her parents, delighting the crowd with her remembrances. Lynn Currence Proudfoot provided a beautiful three-tiered cake, which she cut and served following the toast.

The bride wore her original wedding dress that she was married in on April 2, 1964, at the Methodist Church in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. At the time the bride and groom were both students at Fairmont State University, where they later graduated.
