Art and Ruth Gould celebrate their 50th anniversary

Art and Ruth (Newell) Gould of Rifle were married Aug. 22, 1964, in Carbondale, Colo. They celebrate their Golden Anniversary Friday, Aug. 22.

The Goulds’ family includes children Gaylene Gould, Tony and Rhonda Gould, and Amanda and Chris Stockton, as well as three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Ruth has worked in a number of local business, but most recently she is a part-time employee of Dr. Steven Spevere. She is an active member of First Christian Church in Rifle and tells Biblical flannel graph stories at the local nursing home. Art, also an active member of First Christian of Rifle, worked at Holy Cross Energy for 28 years and is now retired.

Art and Ruth Gould have lived in the Rifle and Silt area for the past 40 years and in Colorado their whole marriage. They raised their three children in the Rifle area. Family and faith have been a focus in their marriage, and have been demonstrated in the hours of volunteering with their church and school community. They enjoy any time they can spend with their family and have instilled within their children and grandchildren pride in community and, more importantly, a deep faith in the Lord. We say a deep thank-you for your years of devotion and love toward one another and us. We celebrate with you on your special day, Love your kids and grandkids.
