Yale couple celebrating 65 years

Howard and Oleta Ellington of Yale will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary at a come-and-go reception from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, June 28, 2014. The reception will be hosted by their family at the First United Methodist Church, 108 South C St. in Yale. The family invites the community to come join in the celebration.

After serving in World War II, Howard Ellington came back to Oklahoma and his hometown of Quay.  He went to a Halloween party in October 1948 where he met Oleta Skinner. The next summer, they were married at a church in Tulsa on July 2, 1949.  

Throughout the years, the couple moved to many different places before settling in Yale. He owned the Western Auto store in Yale until he retired in 1994 and she worked at Fiesta Pools in Tulsa before retiring in 1994 as well.

They have three children, Gary Ellington of Castaic, Calif., Debra Coke of Owasso and Karen Hornberger of Glencoe.

After retirement, they have enjoyed camping, traveling all over the country, spending time at the beach, going to the Senior Citizens of Yale, attending the Yale First United Methodist Church and spending time with their family.

They have seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, along with many other family members.
