Paul and Wanda Shedd celebrated their 50th anniversary on September 5, 2015. An overnight trip to Chattanooga, Tennessee, including a riverboat cruise was planned.
The couple were married on Sept. 5, 1965, by Judge Harry Johnson at his home in Rome.
They have 4 children: Randy Shedd of Fruithurst, Alabama; Tony Shedd of Rome; Cindy Shedd-Robertson of Bethlehem and David Shedd of Rome. They have six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Especially happy times in their marriage include the births of their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as memorable times spent with family members.
The Shedds say the secret to their long and successful marriage is letting the good times outweigh the bad; always being there for each other; and knowing how to give, as well as receive, from one another.
