Orange, Texas —
Francis Tucker and Bille Jean Funderburk were united in Holy Matrimony on December 9th, 1960 at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Orange, TX. Francis served 2 years in the U.S. Marine Corps and retired from the Millwright local 2484 in 2007. Billie has been a devoted wife and mother for the past fifty years. They have three children, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. A celebration was held last weekend honoring their achievement of 50 years of wedded bliss. Many stories were exchanged and many faces were aglow remembering the past times. There also was a sense of joy and anticipation all around for the future memories that have yet to be made for Francis and Billie. From your family and friends congratulations on this monumental achievement, and may your future be as memorable and bright as the past 50 years.
