The Rev. and Mrs. Philip T. Barnum will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary June 21, 2019.
Married in 1969 at Trinity United Methodist Church in London, Ky., Philip, known as P.T., and Peggy L. (Beard) Barnum served in the Kentucky Conference of the United Methodist Church for over 41 years until his retirement in 2010.
In addition to supporting her husband in ministry, Peggy taught for 33 years in several public school districts and retired from the Jefferson County School system.
The couple has two sons, Stephen (Denise) Barnum of Nashville and Michael (Reagan) Barnum of Woodburn. They are also blessed with 10 grandchildren of whom they are very proud: Berkley, Helen, Harper, Halle, Henry, Holly, Ember, Arlee, Otto and Holt.
Their marriage serves as a true testament of Christ’s love for each one of us as Peggy continues to faithfully and selflessly serve P.T. through the devastating disease of Alzheimer’s.
Friends and family will celebrate with a small gathering.
