Junior and Laura Hammons are celebrating 65 years of marriage this year. They were married October 3, 1954, in the home of Laura’s parents, in El Dorado Springs, in front of family and friends.
After a brief stay in Wichita, KS, they returned to Lamar, which they have made their home for the duration of their marriage.
Junior worked for MoDot for 43 years until his retirement in 1989. Laura had many jobs, but her favorite was being a mother to their two children, Jamie and Judy (Crockett).
Over the years they have enjoyed time camping, fishing and spending time with their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
