Routts celebrate 70th anniversary


William L. and Juanita Hazelwood Routt will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary May 21, 2019.

They were married May 21, 1949, in Vine Grove at the home of their pastor.

Both have been members of First Baptist Church of Sonora for more than 60 years.

Mr. Routt is a Korean War veteran, a lifetime farmer and retired after 33 years as a rural letter carrier.

Mrs. Routt has held positions as clerk typist for the Hardin County Health Department, medical assistant to Dr. R.T. Routt and retired after 20 years as a teller for PNC Bank.

They have two daughters, Brenda Wilkerson of Upton and Sally Davenport of Lexington; three grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and three stepgreat-grandchildren.

Because of health issues, there will be a quiet celebration at their home with immediate family.
