The children of Roger and Earlene Crowder recently held a Wedding Vow Renewal Ceremony in honor of their parents’ 45th Wedding Anniversary. The ceremony was Saturday, August 30th at 2:00 p.m. at the Mt. Moriah M.B. Church and was officiated by the couple’s son-in-law Pastor Van C. Houser of Helena, AL.
The bride was escorted by the couple’s only son, R. David Crowder, Jr. and their daughters and daughter-in-law served as bridesmaids: Min. Kendralyn Crowder Houser, Mrs. Roslyn Crowder Hunter, and Mrs. Kimberly Calmes Crowder. Roger and Earlene’s son-in-law, Mr. Anthony L. Hunter served as groomsman. The couple’s seven grandchildren: Damyon, Tristen, Justice, Kameron, Kingston, Trenton and Legend each played a special part as well.
A special thank you to Dr. Benjamin M. Pittman, Mrs. Shellie Pittman and the Mt. Moriah M.B. Church Family. Pastor Pittman offered a special marital blessing at the ceremony, and has been the family pastor for over 30 years. Thank you for all of the love and support from family and friends that helped make this celebration special.
Roger and Earlene have chosen to call Louisville home for the past 44 years. All three of their children were born and raised in Louisville, and graduated from Louisville High School. They are the proud parents of three Mississippi State graduates. Roger is retired from the Mississippi State Extension Service and Earlene touched many students’ lives in both the Louisville and Nanih Waiya Schools. The Crowders are still very active in their community.
