Tom and Dona Schumacher of Bowling Green, Ky., formerly of Elkins, recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary at the Beach Club in Gulf Shores, Ala.
The highlight of the celebration was the marriage of their eldest daughter, Stephanie Dawn, to Michael Vincent. Several dozen friends and relatives were in attendance, including the couple's youngest daughter, Sonya, who served as her sister's maid of honor.
The Schumachers were married July 5, 1969, in Annapolis, Md., at the First Presbyterian Church by the late Rev. Winslow Shaw. This was the same church where Mr. Schumacher was baptized as an infant in 1947.
