Jim and Judy Reeser

Jim is the son of the late Jack and Genevieve Reeser. He grew up in the Olivet and Melvern communities and graduated from Melvern High School in 1967. He attended Emporia State University and then joined the United States Air Force, which took him worldwide and brought him to Little Rock, where he met his future wife. They were wed and moved back to Lyndon to be near his parents.

After 38 years of working at the Goodyear Tire plant, in 2007, Jim retired. Jim now spends his time fiddling with his antique gas engines, hunting and fishing with his son Tim, and spending time with his grandkids.

Judy is the daughter of the late Walter and Ellie Mae Fitzhugh. She grew up in Lonoke, Ark., and graduated from Lonoke High School in 1966.

Judy was a homemaker for several years until deciding to return to school and become an LPN. In 2011, after 17 years of working as an LPN, she joined Jim in retirement. Judy now spends her time working in her flowerbeds and garden and helping care for her grandkids.

After 50 amazing years of marriage, they reside in Lyndon. Their daughter Kristie, her spouse, Katie Schmidt, and their children, Bethanie and Dawson; son, Tim and his wife, Lisa, and their daughters, Allison and Isabella, wish them all the happiness on their anniversary and many more.
