Bobby and Ernestine Lipkins Celebrate Their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Sojourner’s Truth Staff

On August 23, 1969, Bobby and Ernestine Lipkins exchanged wedding vows at Shiloh Baptist Church. On August 24, the Lipkins renewed those vows at the same church – Shiloh Baptist – with their three children, and virtually all of their 11 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren, in attendance.

After the church ceremony, the once-again newlyweds and their hundred-plus guests headed over to Club 300 to dine, dance and partake of a wedding cake that was a replica of the original one they enjoyed in 1969.

Bobby and Ernestine are both Toledo natives who grew up in the same neighborhood, one street apart. They both attended Waite High School, several years apart. Bobby retired from Detroit Edison after 32 years; Ernestine from the former Sheraton Hotel on Secor.

Terrance, Kenny and Bobbie Jo are the couple’s three children.
