David “Bear” and Ann Maples
David “Bear” and Ann Maples of Cleveland celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Jan. 1. They were married in the Valley View Baptist Church parsonage (with 8 inches of snow on the ground). The Mapleses celebrated their golden anniversary on Dec. 29, 2013, at an afternoon tea in the Macedonia Baptist Church activity building, hosted by their three children and spouses: Randy Maples; Andy Maples and his wife, Tonya; and Roxann Maples-Stokes and her husband, Larry. The couple, along with their family and friends, enjoyed the celebration as they have their marriage — with love, laughter and food.
