Parkers married for 35 years

Thursday, June 30, 2005

James "Doggie" Parker and Jean Strickland were marred July 8, 1970, in Las Vegas, by the Justice of the Peace of Clark County, Nev. Twenty-five years later they repeated their wedding vows in the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas, with Doggie's son, wife and daughter, and Jean's daughter and husband in attendance.

For their 35th anniversary, they plan to be in Jean's hometown of Broken Bow, OK., for a reunion of her brothers and sisters, as well as a school reunion.

The Parkers have resided in Cherokee Village these 35 years, plus 10 years previous for Doggie. Jean is from Dallas, Texas, and Doggie from Little Rock.
