NORMAN — Don and Ann Reed of Norman will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday.

Their first home was in Tishomingo while Don attended Murray State. In 1964, they made their first move to Norman to attend the University of Oklahoma followed by a move to Duncan in 1966 where they both worked for Halliburton Services. During this time, Don received his bachelor’s degree from Cameron University. The years following took them to Odessa, Texas, Pittsburgh, Pa., Evansville, Ind., and Wichita, Kan.

The former Ann Armstrong is a retired administrative assistant and Don is retired from Halliburton Services Company.

Don is serving as the national president of the Cushman Club of America and has been the former president of the Oklahoma Chapter of the Cushman of America Club. Ann has been an active member in Norman’s Newcomers Club since their most recent move to Norman in 1996. She also has been the secretary of the Oklahoma Cushman Club and loves to antique as they travel around the country with their Cushman passion. They are avid Sooner fans and attend any and all sporting events that fit their travel schedules.

A celebration of their marriage was held on Aug. 4 during a reception hosted by their Norman neighbors and their two daughters, Teri Reed-Rhoads of West Lafayette, Ind., and Tina Cotton of Kansas City, Mo., and son-in-law Chris Cotton. They have four grandsons and more than 20 Cushman motor scooters that keep them very busy.
