John and Sharon Easley celebrated their 50th Anniversary on March 8, 2013. Married 50 years and counting! The couple were high school sweethearts and married upon graduation. John joined the Navy and then the couple settled in Kansas City to raise their family. "To what do we attribute our long marriage? Don't be a quitter, that's the easy road to take; as in friendships we worked at it and in difficult times we trusted and obeyed the Lord to see us though. Most importantly, we thought of our four children and believed that they not only needed us, but they wanted both parents there for them."
