Ken and Mary Ashley

Ken and Mary Ashley, long term residents of Middlebourne, are celebrating their 50th anniversary at a party on June 21. All of their friends and family are invited to stop by their home beginning at 2 p.m. that day to help them celebrate. Please no gifts, your presence is enough of a gift. But if you hate to attend empty handed, bring a bottle of wine to enjoy with them!

There will be live music, food, and drinks served. An RSVP to Kenna Ashley at kennafred@verizon.net would be appreciated, or just come and enjoy with Ken and Mary.

The Ashleys were married on June 20, 1964, in Paden City.

Mary retired as manager of the West Virginia Unemployment Office in New Martinsville, where she worked from 1977 to 2004. Ken worked as a chemical operator for 32 years at Bayer in New Martinsville, and only missed one day of work. They have a son, Will Ashley, and daughter, Kenna Ashley, as well as seven grandchildren.
