Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Travis and Katye Wyatt, of Berryville, will celebrate their 75th wedding anniversary this week. The couple, ages 96 and 95, respectively, were married in Winnsboro, La., on Feb. 27, 1938. Travis, a clerk for the Missouri-Pacific Railroad, met Katye while making a deposit at the local bank, where she worked as a teller. They have moved 20 times in their married life, settling finally some 35 years ago in Carroll County. They operated a small cattle farm until recently and now lease the property. An anniversary reception will be held for the Wyatts at the 7th Day Adventist Church of Berryville from 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Friends and family are welcome to attend, but the couple requests no gifts please.
