Robert and Barbara Corbin celebrate 50th wedding anniversary

Robert and Barbara Corbin will celebrate 50 years of marriage April 26.

The two met when Barbara was 10 and Robert was 13. Barbara's grandmother rented a home in Modesto from Robert's mother so she would see him when she came to visit all the way from Amarillo, Texas. When Barbara was 20, she moved to California. Robert was serving in the military at the time but when he was out they went on their first date. That date was on Valentine's Day and they were married that same year on April 26, 1962 in Modesto.

Robert is a retired supervisor from Gallo Glass and Barbara is a homemaker.

The Corbins have been residents of Coarsegold for 11 years. They plan to celebrate their golden anniversary with friends and family in Ripon.

They have three children: Robert Lee Corbin III, Arney LeWayne Corbin, and Toby Dean Corbin.
