Stonewall couple celebrates 50th wedding anniversary

Stonewall —

Charlie and Bobbie Nichols, Stonewall, are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary June 15, 2013.

Bobbie Rae Morris met Charlie Derrell Nichols when Bobbie and the other Walnut Springs, Texas, High School cheerleaders waved at the boys parked on the town square as their school bus drove through the neighboring town on the way home from a football game. Charlie and his friends followed the bus back to her school, where they met.

After dating him during most of her high school, Bobbie and her parents moved to Oklahoma at the beginning of her senior year. Charlie made the six-hour trip to see his sweetheart every weekend until they married on June 15, 1963, in Fort Worth, Texas. 

They have lived in Mesquite, Texas, and Valliant, Okla. The past 35 years, they have made their home in Stonewall. Charlie retired after working as a supervisor at the wood mill, working in the oil field and as a laboratory courier. Bobbie is a paralegal with Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma. They are active members of the First Baptist Church of Stonewall. They are thankful for their friends, family and many wonderful years together.

The couple has two daughters.  Their daughter, Melanie, and her husband, Todd Gollihare, of Kellyville, Okla., have three daughters, Brette, Bailey and Brenna. Their daughter, Charla, and husband, Jonathan King, live in Konawa and have two sons, Kellan and Kylar, and a daughter, Kayden.

A reception honoring the couple will be hosted by their family at  Ada Arts and Heritage Center from 4-6 p.m. Saturday, June 15.
