Alvis Reeves and Dolores Beasley were married Dec. 28, 1963 in Shamrock, Texas.
They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Jan. 4, 2014 with a gathering at the IOOF Event Center attended by family and friends from all over the United States, or at least as far as Amarillo.
Through those 50 years, the couple has resided in Dallas, New York City, Dayton, Ohio, Dallas again, Chicago, then back to Dallas, moving to Corsicana in October of 2000. Alvis worked primarily in retail, which necessitated the moves.
The couple were blessed with three children; Alvis Reeves III, Susan Reeves Johnson, and James Reeves, as well as six grandchildren; Kara, Jordan, Will, Taylor, Philip and Grace. The celebration was hosted by the Reeves’ children and grandchildren.
