ASHLAND — Lynn and Annis Prichard of Ashland will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary by attending a family dinner with their loving family.

The couple were married on June 7, 1962.

Mr. Prichard served in the U.S. army during the Korean War, from 1954 to 1956. Years later, while working for Armco Steel Corp., he also worked his 200-acre farm, where he raised white-faced cattle with his prize bull, “Moses.” He continues working at the company he has owned and operated for the past 35 years, The Prichard Real Estate, Appraisal, and Land Development Co.

In 1960, Mrs. Prichard was the first operating room technician to be trained at King’s Daughters Medical Center. She was employed for 11 years by Dr. Bill Roland, an orthopedic surgeon, as his private operating room technician. She attended King’s Daughters Hospital School of Nursing and graduated with honors and received the Achievement Award in 1974. She was employed by King’s Daughters Medical Center as a registered nurse for the operating room department and remained with the work she loved for 33 years, until her retirement in 2006.

They have four children, Debbie (Jerry) Adams, Becky (Ron) Wells, Missy (Mike) Wells and Robert (Amy Bentley) Prichard; nine grandchildren, Justin and Kristin Adams, Heather (Charles) Hatfield, Ashley and Megan Wells, Chad Thacker and R.J., Abby and Ben Prichard.
