Marvin and Helen Matus are celebrating their 60th anniversary this year.
The couple was married June 30, 1956, at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Abbott.
They made Dallas their home, attending St. Pius X Catholic Church for 48 years. Here they raised four children and learned to square dance.
To say they love dancing is an understatement, for more than 40 years they have danced all over the country and held leadership roles for many square dance conventions.
In 2004, they returned to country living in the Wills Point area. They are active members of St. Therese Catholic Church in Canton and enjoy gardening.
Their children and spouses – Richard, Nancy and her husband Brian, Michael and his wife Carrie and Greg and his wife Jude – along with granddaughters, Nicole, Kelsey and Penelope, are honoring them with a gathering for family and friends.
