Edward and Barbara Talbott, of Cluster Springs, will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on Thursday, April 17.

They are the parents of Bunny (Phil) Propst, Donna (Michael) Hudson, Sandy (Marshall) Slayton and Darrin (Dianne) Talbott. They also are the proud grandparents of eleven and the great-grandparents of two.

Born and raised in Halifax County, the Talbotts have made their home in Cluster Springs for all 60 years. Ed’s Honda is their family business, now being run by their son.

Bowling and softball, as well as raising their children and grandchildren has occupied most of their leisure time. Edward is a deacon at Black Walnut Baptist Church, which they both attend regularly.

The couple will be at home Saturday enjoying an open house celebration hosted by their children and everyone is welcome to drop by between 1-3 p.m. to share a hug and a few stories.
