Hal and Vanette Thompson celebrate 50 years of marriage


Hal and Vanette (Bozeman) Thompson celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on May 25, 2012.

Hal and Vanette were married on May 25, 1962, in Bassfield, Miss., and have lived in Pascagoula, Miss., Miami, Fla., and Pine Bluff, Ark. After working for the government in various capacities for 32 years, Hal retired from NCTR in 1997.

Hal and Vanette were blessed with two children – Jeff and Jenni – and equally blessed with their daughter-in-law, Tammy, and son-in-law, Thomas. They are proud grandparents to three beautiful granddaughters, Brittney, Haley and Abigail.

A small family celebration was hosted in their honor on May 12, which included a vow renewal ceremony. The Thompsons will continue their celebration with a trip to Sanibel Island, Fla., and Savannah, Ga., later this year.
