Billy Kitchings can trace his Lamar County ancestors back to 1814 but he’s loved his “Indiana girl” Bonnie for more than 50 years.
The two met in 1962 when both were teaching at Forest Park Junior High. They’ll celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary June 23. “We were such good friends and worked together so much that we were engaged before we dated,” Bonnie says.
