Max and Robbie Rash of Mildred are blessed to celebrate their 50th anniversary on July 14, 2011.
Graduates of Mildred High School, they were childhood sweethearts from age 13 and 14 and have lived in the Mildred area for most of their lives together. The wedding took place at Eureka Methodist Church officiated by the late Rev. Ted B. Spencer. They have three children and nine grandchildren. Their son, Todd Rash, is an attorney in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and is married to Allison Isbell Rash, also from Mildred. They have two girls, Katelyn and Sydney. Their oldest daughter, Kimberly Rash Chu, a teacher, lives in Mildred with her four children: Erin, Evan, Elissa and Elana. Their youngest daughter, Tara Rash Ayers, is also a teacher. She lives in Mildred with her husband Byron Ayers, a construction supervisor, and three children: Ally, Gracie and Daniel. The Ayers are youth pastors at Mildred Baptist Church.
Max and Robbie were former bank employees, and are retired after 26 years of pastoral ministry, serving churches in Auburn, Ill.; and Texarkana, Lubbock, Gun Barrel City and Duncanville in Texas. They are members of Northside Baptist Church. As extensive travelers, they have been to every state except Hawaii, 11 of the 14 Canadian provinces, Mexico and Israel. They have driven the Alaskan Highway twice, and in 2010 they took the inside passage cruise to Alaska.
For their 50th year, Max and Robbie have made it a point to celebrate each month, having been to California, Florida and New England so far in 2011. In July, a small family gathering is planned and then they will continue their “second” honeymoon to a cooler climate.
