Doyce and Martha Green of Silver Creek celebrated their 50th anniversary recently with a family luncheon given by their children. The couple were married on Nov. 19, 1965 by the groom’s father, Rev. John Green, at the home of the bride’s parents.
They have three children: Lisa Ward of Rome, Nathaniel Green of Cedartown and Morgan Green of Silver Creek. They have seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
They say the most memorable times in their marriage have been the births of their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. When asked what has been the secret to their long marriage, the answer is
love and lots of prayers.”
