FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. — Dr. and Mrs. Ronald D. George, formerly of Buckhannon, will celebrate their Diamond Jubilee 60th wedding anniversary on March 8, 2013. Ronald, a B-UHS grad from 1951, is the son of the late Dorsey and Cecelia George and Joan, B-U Class of 1952, is the daughter of the late Lynn and Meryle Dawson, all of whom were residents of Buckhannon.
Ron and Joan were married in Buckhannon on March 8, 1953, at the First United Methodist Church and honeymooned in Washington, D.C. The couple raised two daughters in Buckhannon: Ronda George of Cary, N.C.; and Diana Cabaniss and husband Chris of Fuquay-Varina, N.C.. The Georges are now the proud grandparents of Lauren (11) and Jacob (10) Cabaniss and moved south to the Raleigh, N.C., area in 2003 to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren.
Dr. George retired after 40 years as an optometrist in Upshur County and both he and his wife Joan were quite active in the community during their nearly 70 years in Buckhannon serving many volunteer organizations.
Cards of congratulations may be mailed to The Georges at 904 E. Ivy Valley Drive, Fuquay-Varina, NC 27526.
