Larry and Diane Cripe Miller, North Manchester, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Saturday.

The couple were married on Oct. 16, 1971, at the West Manchester Church of the Brethren by Rev. John Bunch.

Larry is an auctioneer and owns and operates Miller Auction, Moving and Storage. Diane is a retired school bus driver, where she drove for Manchester Community Schools for 25-plus years.

The couple have three sons: Heath (Jennifer) Miller, of Silver Lake; Blake (Kim) Miller, of Akron; and Derek (Lindsey) Miller, of Silver Lake. They also have eight grandchildren.

A family trip took place in 2020 to a Tennessee cabin to celebrate. The couple made a return trip this past September to mark the event.
