(Editor's note: The following story was written by Mr. Tomerlin's niece. They would enjoy hearing from their friends.)
Local residents Gene and Lena (Reyer) Tomerlin were married on March 11, 1944. They have lived their entire lives in the Ardmore community, leading and supporting their church groups, living their family members, and making many friends.
Their son, Steve, resides with his wife, Nan, in Shelbyville, TN. A successful farmer and skilled carpenter, Gene has read the Bible through 11 times. Lena was a seamstress at Serbin Fashions, Inc., and has perfected her pecan pies that are enjoyed by lucky diners.
Through the years, neighbors and visitors have admired the perfectly manicured lawn and shrubs, the arrow-straight rows of garden vegetables and beautiful iris beds that they maintained on their Highway 110 property.
Congratulations to this inspiring couple on their Diamond Anniversary! You may send anniversary wishes to: Gene and Lena Tomerlin, P.O. Box 44, Ardmore, TN 38449.
