Nobles celebrate 50th wedding anniversary

Johnny and Libby (Smith) Nobles of Denmark celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 14, 2016. They were honored with a reception from 4 p.m. until 6 p.m. that afternoon at Govan Baptist Church in Govan hosted by their children and grandchildren.

Dr. Andy Sandifer, interim pastor of Govan Baptist Church, roasted the couple, wished them many more years together and offered the blessing for the meal which consisted of BBQ chicken and pork chops with all the fixings. It was a wonderful celebration with over 150 people in attendance to help them commemorate their 50 years of marriage.

The couple was married in Aynor on May 14, 1966. They have three sons and daughters-in-law: Chad and Angela Nobles of Denmark; Jade and Pam Nobles of Barnwell; Alex and Nelsa Nobles of Barnwell. They have been blessed with eight grandchildren and one great-grandson.
