Marvin and Wilma Updike


Marvin and Wilma Barnes Updike celebrated their 50th Christmas on Dec. 25, 2011 as husband and wife.
They were united in marriage on Sept. 30, 1961 at the home of Bro. Bill Crawford in Gallatin County. Josephine Webster and Donald Epperson witnessed the couple’s nuptials.
Marvin and Wilma have four daughters, Sally, Lori, Marcia and Lisa. The couple also has four sons-in-law, five grandchildren and one granddaughter-in-law.
In 1986, a surprise 25th anniversary party was given in their honor and a surprise 40th anniversary celebration was hosted by their daughters in 2001.
This year, the couple wanted a quiet 50th anniversary celebration and enjoyed a meal at Jewell’s Restaurant in Warsaw.
