— Mr. and Mrs. Boyd Phillips will celebrate their 65th anniversary at a family reunion at the home of John and Virginia Groendyke in Scottsdale, Ariz. Cards may be sent to P.O. Box 1728, Enid, OK 73702.

Boyd Phillips and JoAnn L. Larimore were married Dec. 28, 1948, in Beechers City, Ill., by the Rev. R.L. Carpenter. Viola Larimore and Leland Miller attended the couple.

Boyd and JoAnn spent their entire working life in the oil and gas industry. They began in Beecher City, Ill., before being transferred to Phillipsburg, Kan. They moved to Enid in 1960, and except for one year in Tulsa, they remained in Enid until Boyd retired in 2000, at which time they moved to their favorite lake in east Texas.

Boyd and JoAnn are longtime members of Christian Church of The Covenant.

Their children are Stanley R. Phillips of Oklahoma City, and Virginia Groendyke of Enid and Scottsdale, Ariz. They have four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.ˎ
