Willie and Geneva Williams

Willie and Geneva (Conner) Williams are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Oct. 3.

The couple were married on Oct. 3, 1970, at New Zion Baptist Church in Beloit, Wis., with Rev. U.S. Pride officiating.

Willie is retired from Chrysler in Belvidere after 42 years. Prior to her retirement, Geneva was employed at OMC in Beloit.

They plan to celebrate this event, as soon as the COVID-19 crisis is over, with a trip to Aruba.
