Shannon 50th Anniversary
Janeal and Len Shannon of Birmingham were married March 6, 1964 at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church.
They recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary at a family dinner at The Club followed by a trip to the Grand Canyon.
The dinner was hosted by their children, Len B. Shannon III of Birmingham and Neal and Angela Shannon of Chattanooga, Tenn.
The couple has five grandchildren, Natalie, Len IV (Brock), Mary Frances, Stephanie and Amelia.
Mrs. Shannon is the former Janeal Newell Nichols. Mr. Shannon is employed with Shannon & Associates and is retired from SouthTrust Bank. They are members of Briarwood Presbyterian Church.
Len and Janeal met after Len saw Janeal’s photo in a newspaper article printed more than 50 years ago on a Sunday. By that Thursday, Len had found Janeal.
