Sheltons celebrate 70th anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. Louis Shelton

Louis H. Shelton and Leta “Justine” White were married in Bowling Green on June 25, 1949, at the home of the bride’s parents, and celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on June 25, 2019, in Bowling Green, at their own home.

Because Louis served as a career officer in the U.S. Army, the family traveled all over the United States, as well as overseas.

They were blessed with four children, most of whom were lucky enough to travel with them, though their youngest still doesn’t remember Athens. During their lifelong love affair, they have also been blessed with seven grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.
