Betty and the Rev. Burton Stokes of Floresville, Texas, celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary with a dinner party hosted by their children.

Betty and Burton met while he was attending Tulane University in New Orleans. Betty was a freshman at Newcomb College. It was love at first sight! The couple were married June 11, 1948, in Decatur, Ga.

Burton and Betty have been blessed with three daughters who adore their parents: Susan Shaked and husband Ze’ev, Julia Stokes, and Betsy Leifeste and husband Rodney. They have six grandchildren, Seth Stokes-Leifeste, Isaiah Franco, Margaret Thibeaux, Ashley Dickinson, Angela Wauson, and Jennifer Stokes. They also have 11 great-grandchildren.

Burton (also known as “P.B.”) retired as assistant DCS of engineering and director of ground systems engineering from the U.S. Air Force Security Service after 30 years of government service. Since retirement, both he and Betty have faithfully served the Lord as pastors, teachers, and speakers. Burton has served on the board of directors of several ministries, local and international. He has also served as advisor to Aglow International, both San Antonio Day and the Central Texas area.

Betty served as president of San Antonio Day Aglow, Central Texas Area president, and as chairman of the Aglow International Conference held in San Antonio in 1989. Burton is also well-known for his weekly prayers from the Tower of the Americas, where for several years he prayed over his beloved city of San Antonio.

Together they have created a legacy of love for all who know them.
