Lucille and Robert Bishop

EAST PALESTINE — Lucille and Robert Bishop, of Failor Road, are celebrating their 70th year together.

The former Lucille Allen, the daughter of Jonathan and Ellen Allen, married Robert Bishop on Oct. 1, 1949 in Greenup, Kentucky.

Mr. Bishop retired from the Insul Company.

Mrs. Bishop was a homemaker and together they raised seven children: Robert E. Bishop, Charles Bishop, Linda (Bishop) Johnson, Caroline (Bishop) Little, Peggy (Bishop) Cunningham and Bonnie (Bishop) Peebles.

They have 19 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

The couple will be honored on their 70th anniversary with a party hosted by their family at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, in the community center at East Palestine City Park.

All are welcome. A visitors’ presence is the only gift that is asked.
