Folsom’s Celebrate 70TH Wedding Anniversary

Editor’s Note: After this story was submitted to the Jackson County Times and scheduled for publication, Mrs. Folsom passed away. Her obituary is presented in this issue. We decided to go ahead and present this story of happiness as the family recognized Ray and Mildred for their wonderful marriage. We are glad the family had the opportunity to celebrate their life together before her unfortunate death this Monday.

Ray Melvin Folsom and Annie Mildred Cloud were married on September 15, 1939 at the Calhoun County Courthouse, Blountstown Florida. During their wonderful blessed 70 years of marriage they have lived most all their life in Jackson County. Ray is the son of late Remer Ellis Folsom and Mamie Mercer Daniels. Mildred is the daughter of the late James “Jim” and Annie Vester Cloud. Shortly after marriage the Folsom’s built their lifelong home, raised their family of three and were faithful members of the community. Ray and Mildred are lifetime members of Dellwood Baptist Church, Dellwood Fl. and each are retirees from Florida State Hospital, Chattahoochee, FL.

Ray and Mildred’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren surprised them with a covered dish luncheon on Sunday, September 13, to honor and celebrate their wedding anniversary, reminiscing about the earlier years, and about the good and bad times. The family had a special time of expressing their love and gratitude to them for setting such wonderful examples of what life and love is supposed to be.

The Folsom’s have three children two sons Jerry and Jimmy and a daughter Jan. The Folsom’s have been blessed with six grandchildren, twelve great- grandchildren, and one great- great grandchild.
