... as they were

Mr. and Mrs. James (Brenda) Rankin, 775 Old Orchard, Bolivar, will be celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary April 20. The couple chose the month of April for their wedding in 1985, the same month in which the bride's parents, Dan and Beverly Kinsey of Port Washington, were married 25 years earlier in 1960. James is the son of Russell and Betty Rankin, Uhrichsville.

The Rev. Jeffrey King officiated when James and Brenda were married in St. Paul's United Church of Christ, Port Washington, on April 20, 1985.

The Rankins have two children, Lydia Elizabeth, a freshman at Ashland University, and Jonathan Bradon of the home.
