Ruth and Russell McAlear celebrated 50 years of marriage on Dec. 31, 2013. They met and spent most of their lives in Colorado. She was 16 years old and he was 19 years old when they were married. They moved to Kingman in July of 1999 and began delivering the Kingman Daily Miner newspaper. Their daughter surprised them with a 50th anniversary party on Dec. 14. Friends from the Church of Christ in Golden Valley were there, as were lots of friends and family from all over Colorado and Arizona. Some people had not seen one another for over 20 years. Everyone had a wonderful time.
