Anniversary couples renew vows, share stories at diocesan Mass

For his 50th wedding anniversary this year, Steve Lemmon received from his sister-in-law a t-shirt with a message in Spanish: “Lo que diga mi mujer.”

It translates, “Whatever my wife says.”

Steve, an Urbana native, met his wife, Josefa, in Spain when he was stationed there with the U.S. Navy in the early 1960s. They were married in Spain on May 24, 1964, and returned to his wife’s homeland this June to mark their golden anniversary.
