Because of God’s grace and faithfulness through all the Air Force years and since, Col. Douglas M. and Mrs. Ellen T. Senter of Columbia celebrated their 50th anniversary on July 2, re-tracing the steps where they first met on the University of South Carolina campus and football field, and reading a box of love letters they recently discovered in the attic. They will celebrate with their family later in the summer.
Doug and Ellen were married July 2, 1966, in North Augusta. Their three beloved children are Elisabeth (Bob) Mays of Parkton, Maryland; Edith (Dustin) Cook of Wilmington, North Carolina; and Thurmond (Mariah) Senter of Morrow, Ohio. They have seven grandchildren.
