David and Mary Lu (Youtsey) Miller, of Washington, are celebrating 50 years of marriage.

The couple were married at the Baptist Church in Maryville, Missouri, on October 10, 1969.

Mr. Miller worked in the business agriculture field for 43 years retiring in 2013, nine for Oscar Mayer and the balance for the Growmark FS System.

Mrs. Miller was a stay-at-home mother for most of their children’s youthful years. She joined the Metro Mix Sweet Adelines Barber Shop chorus in 1980. Missing only a few years when they lived in Illinois, she remained involved in music leading church choirs. The Millers have both been active with their church families.

The Millers have three children, Jon of Owasso Oklahoma, Jason of West Branch, and Mindy of Normal Illinois. They also have four grandchildren.

To celebrate their anniversary, the couple will be taking in the sites as they drive along the Mississippi trail.
