Jerry and Barbara Mahaffey, of Pine, celebrate 50 years of marriage this month.
The couple were married Dec. 30, 1954 at the Central United Methodist Church of Phoenix, two months and a day after they met.
Barbara was still in high school at the time, but upon graduation, the couple moved to California.
They have three children, Michael, of Reno, Nev.; Kelly and K.C., both of Strawberry.
The Mahaffeys have lived in the Rim country for the past 10 years, moving here from the San Francisco Bay area.
They will join their son, Michael and his family in Reno, for the celebration of their anniversary.
