Earven and Kay Hadley to celebrate 50 years of marriage


Hadley: Earven and Kay Hadley, blessed by God with 50 amazing years of marriage, will celebrate with a vow renewal ceremony officiated by their pastor, Apostle Patrick Lockett Sr., and a dinner.

They were joined in holy matrimony on June 5, 1964, and were blessed with five children, Earven Eshmelek-Malakyah (Antwinette), Kelven L. Hadley (Gwen), Gary L. Hadley (Audrey), Karen D. Wine (David), and Kerry L. Hadley (Nicole). They have 18 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. They also have a special family member (pet bird) named Buddy. Earven is passionate about his relationship with his wife, his church and computers. Kay’s passions are nurturing her family and cooking.

Mr. and Mrs. Hadley are active members of New Community Baptist Church where Apostle Patrick Lockett Sr. is pastor. Earven serves as a senior deacon and Sunday school superintendent and Kay serves as a deaconess. They are truly each other’s greatest inspiration.
