The children of Stephen and Joyce (Lutz) Murdock of Perry happily announce their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary.
Stephen and Joyce were married Aug. 22, 1970, at the First United Methodist Church in Lone Tree, Iowa, by Rev. Donald Wooge.
They have been blessed with three children and six grandchildren, Jill (Trent) Stringer and children Elise, 16, and Bennett, 14, of Leawood, Kansas, Kimberly (Eric) Klingensmith and children Savannah, 16, and Trinity, 10, of Ankeny and Kara (Jason) McKee and children Margo, 6, and Graham, 4, of Granger.
Stephen served in the U.S. Airforce and is a funeral director. Joyce retired as a hair stylist from Elegans Beauty Salon in Perry.
The couple moved to Perry in 1978 and purchased Timeon Funeral Home. Then in 1983 they merged with Fouch Funeral Home and since 1990 have solely owned and operated Murdock Funeral Home.
