Published 7:04 pm Tuesday, October 24, 2023

All friends of Howell and Jean Skeen are invited to celebrate their Platinum Anniversary with them from 2 until 4 p.m. Sunday, October 29, at the Marriot Inn in Troy.

Howell and Jean are among the very few couples who have the joy of celebrating 70 years of marriage. According to Census data, only 0.1 percent of marriages make it to 70 years.

In 1988, Howell and Jean Skeen and Anthony Skeen and Phil Skeen had a vision to open a funeral home to provide those “added” services to a funeral to make it more meaningful and personal. Congratulations, Howell and Jean on 70 years of marriage and for their longtime commitment to service to the community.
