Dorothy and Oscar Head wed on June 4, 1955, and their children — Annette Epps, Vickie Bumgardner and Mickey Head — recently held a luncheon celebration to honor their being married 60 years. The group celebrating with the heads included their children, spouses, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other family members and friends. The festivities included lunch at Catfish Cabin in Monroe, wedding cake and a Not-So-Newly-Wed game. Decorations were the traditional wedding bells, balloons and wedding pictures.

Both Dorothy and Oscar and retired from the Ouachita Parish School System and are active members of First Baptist Church of West Monroe.
