Richters Celebrate 50 Years Together

Kathie (Riggenbach) and Scott Richter, as newlyweds

Kathie (Riggenbach) and Scott Richter will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary on Jan. 25.

After spending a short honeymoon at Oglebay Park, the newlyweds then drove to Victorville, California to begin setting up their first home, one of 22 moves they have made.

Their first child Cindy was born in December 1969, and their son Jeff was born in November 1972. Their six grandchildren are such a joy.

After graduating from Magnolia in 1965 and 1967 and then WVU in the early 70s, they have lived from California to New Jersey and Texas to Wisconsin, and many places in between. Scott’s jobs and various vacations have taken them to over 50 countries. That first dance (Scott credits Kathie for asking him) at the Roller Rink on New Year’s Eve 1964-65 seems like so long ago.

“We were both pleased to move back to New Martinsville 10 years ago after being away from 30 years. We thank God for the many blessings He has freely given to each of us as individuals and as a couple over our many years together!”
