Frank and Fran Mylum's 50th Anniversary

Frank and Frances (Owens) Mylum celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on February 10, 2017. They were married on February 10, 1967 at Williamsburg Baptist Church by the Rev. Thomas Pugh. Frank, a lifelong resident of Williamsburg, is the son of the late Frank and Dorothy Mylum. Frances, born and raised in Williamsburg, is the daughter of the late Walter and Ethel Owens.

Frank was employed with C&P Telephone, Bell Atlantic, and Verizon, retiring after 37 ½ years of service, and continues to work part time as an independent contractor with the Department of Defense. Frances was employed with the James City County Schools for 18 years a paraprofessional. They are active and vital members of the Williamsburg Baptist Church, with both serving as deacons.

Frank and Fran's very happy life together has included many adventures in traveling, including trips within the United States and to Europe and Asia. One such adventure was walking a portion of The Great Wall of China.

Their most rewarding adventure, however, has been raising their three children and enjoying their children's families and the eight beautiful grandchildren between them. Amanda and her husband, Paul have Elena, Jack, and Finn; Rick and his wife, Tina have Taylor and Rebecca; and David and his wife, Whitney have Cooper, Elliot, and Brody. They love their grandchildren very much, but their Havanese dog, Miss Sippi, comes in a very close second.

Frank and Fran will celebrate their 50th anniversary as a complete family on Sunday, February 19th when their children, spouses, and grandchildren join them for Sunday Service at the Williamsburg Baptist Church, followed by a family luncheon in their honor.
