Lynn and Penny Massingill recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.Mr. Massingill and the former Penny Spencer were married Dec. 9, 1972, at the West Main Church of Christ in Gatesville, by minister Lewis Hunter.
Their sons, Gavin and Chase, along with their wives, Holly and Diane, and children, hosted a reception in honor of the couple at The Knife & Cork in Gatesville. A catered meal was provided to more than 50 guests, as was a beautiful cake noting the 50-year milestone. As those attending approached the entrance, they viewed the Massingill’s 1967 Chevelle Super Sport, which was purchased on their 10th anniversary and is identical to the one they dated in. Everyone enjoyed a video of the couple including many photos of their wedding. Their children spoke to the crowd and gave toasts to their parents. Cindy Haynes of Ft. Worth provided the photography for the evening.
