John and Shirley Jacob celebrate 50 years of marriage


On Saturday, Jan. 21, John and Shirley Jacob had a golden time as they celebrated their 50-year anniversary with family and friends.

The day began with them renewing their vows at St. Peter Catholic Church and ended with a scrumptious luncheon. There were over 100 in attendance, including two of John’s sisters, Mary Finley and Rosina Joffrion from Pineville, La., and his niece, U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley from Lafayette, La.

The event was orchestrated by their two daughters, Michelle Jacob from Dallas, Texas, and Linda Richardson from White Hall. John and Shirley’s grandchildren, J.B., Alexis, Myles, Michael and John, and great-granddaughter, Haylee Nicole, were also in attendance.
