ca. 1968: 50th Wedding Anniversary

On January 27, 1968, Michael Carol Pooley became the bride of Charles Dorsey Schaffler in a formal candlelight ceremony held at St. Richard’s Catholic Church in Jackson, MS. An elegant large reception was held afterward at the Jackson Country Club. There was a band for dancing and plentiful potables and libations for the many guests to enjoy. The newlyweds departed the reception and went by private plane directly to Gatlinburg for their honeymoon. “Mickey,” a graduate of Ole Miss, had moved to Memphis and was teaching at Immaculate Conception High School for Girls. “Charlie,” a native Memphian and graduate of Notre Dame, had returned home to begin his career, and the two met here. They have been in Memphis ever since. They have three sons, all happily married, and eight grandchildren, all of whom live in Memphis. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Schaffler!
