John and Lucy Francis, formerly of Grass Valley, recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. They were married Nov. 29, 1952, in Chico.

Many friends and family came from far and near to celebrate at a reception given by their four children – Tony, John, Lucy and Richard – at Eagle’s Hall in Chico. They have nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

John retired in 1980 after 23 years in civil service at McClennan Air Force Base. Lucy was a homemaker and taught sign language and finger spelling in elementary and high school adult programs in Nevada and Placer counties, and retired in 1991.

John and Lucy belong to the Portuguese Chico Fatima and Holy Ghost Club. They also belong to several RV clubs and enjoy traveling.
