Golden wedding anniversary

Olin Williams and Cynthia Bernice Fobb said “I do” on July 23, 1952, at Sulphur Springs Methodist Church in Bennington, Oklahoma. Fifty years later, they are still happily married and reside in Bennington, where Olin is the Pastor at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Bennington. Bernice serves as the Sunday school teacher. Mr. and Mrs. Williams have five children and 17 grandchildren. Olin has been employed with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma for 25 years and has served as the Employee Chaplain for the past seven years. Bernice dedicated 22 years as RN at the Hugo Clinic and then to Durant Regional Medical Clinic before retiring two years ago.

On August 20, 2022, friends and family gathered at the Choctaw Nation Community Center in Durant, Oklahoma, to celebrate their anniversary. The couple was showered with love and plenty of laughter. Entertainment was provided by four granddaughters playing Amazing Grace on their clarinets, a gospel singing, and a video tribute was also shown that included pictures of their lives and special moments throughout their marriage. Words of congratulations, encouragement and fun memories were shared from the guests for the happy couple.
