Mr. and Mrs. Doug Milby of West Jersey will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Bunker Hill Church of God in Buda.
Doug Milby and the former Sandra Crist, both of Buda, were married Oct. 12, 1963, at the Bunker Hill Church of God in rural Buda. They lived in the Buda, Tiskilwa and Kewanee areas before moving to rural West Jersey in 1967 where they have resided since. Doug has been a life-long farmer and Sandy worked as a beautician for many years besides working alongside Doug in the farming operation. Besides owning and operating their newest venture, Elmore Stock Farm Outfitters outside of Elmore, they enjoy traveling, hunting and spending time with friends and family.
They are the parents of two children, Lauri (Jim) Young of Bradford and Melissa (Kevin) Molln of Toulon. They also have five grandchildren, Amanda (Dustin) Young Efnor, James D. Young and Ryan Young, all of Bradford, and Jade and McKinna Molln of Toulon.
