Lynn and Goldie (Harris) Richie of Payson will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary May 2. The couple were married in Phoenix in 1954.
The Richies, natives of Arizona, chose Payson as their home in 1993 after retiring from service as ministers in the Church of the Nazarene.
Lynn presently serves as chaplain with the Payson branch of RTA Hospice and Goldie as homemaker.
The couple have three children, Ben (Vickie) of Scottsdale, Don (Barbara) of Klamath Falls, Ore., and Elizabeth (Louis) of Amarillo, Texas.
The Richies are planning an Alaskan cruise to celebrate their anniversary.
