Celebrate 60th Anniversary

Married on June 14, 1952, Ernest and Gloria Jean Shives celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary June 9, 2012, at Hancock United Methodist Church with 125 family and friends.

The couple has three daughters: Sharon of Warfordsburg, married to Tom Mellott; Teresa of Arlington, Va., married to Ken Datesman, and Carol of Needmore, married to Rich Grove. They have four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

The guestbook was attended by granddaughter Emma Grove. The blessing was offered by grandson Cooper Grove.

The meal was catered by Pittman’s Market and served by members of the Methodist Church. Photos were taken by Hypnotic Imagery of Hagerstown.

Ernest retired from Mack Truck in 1986. Since that time Ernest and Jean have enjoyed many bus trips all over the United States with old friends and made many new ones. They have also continued the tradition they started many years ago of taking a family vacation to Ocean City, Md.
