Osborne 60th Anniversary

Mr. and Mrs. William Gerald Osborne of Cleveland are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary today, Aug. 5, 2018, with family and friends at First Baptist Church during the 8:30 a.m. worship service.

Gerald and Dorcas were united in marriage Sunday, Aug. 10, 1958, at Sisk Memorial Baptist Church in Fort Mill, S.C., which was built of stone. Now living in Rowan County, the couple find it interesting that the stone used to build Sisk Memorial, which was cut on the lawn of the church, came from Faith.

The Osborne’s family of six has now grown to 25, including Jayne, Shuford, Clara, Clay, Sam and Rose Abernethy; Judy, Jeff, Luke, Heather, Caroline and Layton Turner; Jerrie, Rodney, Emily, Jordan, Tate, Natalie and Bryce Burns; and John, Laura, Charles and Elizabeth Osborne.

Mr. Osborne is a graduate of Clemson University, where he majored in chemical engineering. He worked 20 years for Fiber Industries and retired in 2000 from Mohawk Carpet Industries in Dalton, Ga. He is now Town Commissioner for the Town of Cleveland. Dorcas is a retired substitute teacher for the Rowan-Salisbury school system.

“Keeping God uppermost in our lives has been the answer to our long married life”
