Kenneth and Annie Pittman, of Morristown, celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary at The Regency Retirement Village on Saturday, June 6, 2020.
In spite of COVID-19, family and friends celebrated with them with a car parade consisting of 30 cars and trucks decorated with balloons and signs congratulating them on their anniversary. Those who attended were also able to talk with the Pittmans through a window, as well as eating cake with them. Kenneth and Annie enjoyed cake on the inside with some of their caregivers while family and friends enjoyed cake outside their window practicing social distancing.
Some of those in attendance were their son, Wayne from Atlanta, Georgia; daughters, Mary Ann Pittman Skelton from Simpsonville, South Carolina, and Janice Pittman Atkins from Orlando, Florida. One other son, Richard from Tyler, Texas, was unable to attend so that he could be with his wife, Vicky Evans Pittman and the Evans family as they supported each other in the death of Vicky’s dad, Curtis Evans, former manager of the Morristown Country Club. Also in attendance were several grandchildren from Chattanooga, Franklin, and Murfreesboro and Florida. One great-grandchild from Murfeesboro also attended. Many of their family from the Knoxville and Lenoir City area were in attendance along with former neighbors and Noe’s Chapel United Methodist Church recent and former church members.
A fun time for all with many smiles from Mr. and Mrs. Pittman and creating a great memory for them, especially during this time that they have been and continue to be isolated due to the COVID-19.
