May 31 will mark the 43rd wedding anniversary of Bryant residents Anna
Elizabeth and Joe Ogden. The couple met in 1969 at the Wesleyan Foundation
on the campus of the - then - Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical College
in Monticello, where Ogden worked.
“I’d come in for a free meal on Sunday nights," Anna muses. “I didn’t have
a car, and he offered to give me a ride back home.”
“Two weeks after we met, I told her,‘I’m going to marry you',” Ogden says.
“I told him, ‘that sounds like a pretty good idea to me,’” Anna laughs.
