Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gunter celebrated 50 years of commitment, happiness and faith throughout their marriage. They both grew up in the Piney Woods of East Texas, in a small town named Mineola. As they reflect back over the years, they fell in love on McFarland High School campus in the early 1960’s. Robert and Minnie were wed on a beautiful Saturday evening at St. Paul’s Baptist Church on Oct. 26, 1968.
The Gunters raised two lovely daughters, Cassandra Gunter-Miles and Regina Gunter. They are blessed with two beautiful granddaughters whom they adore, Kristin Danielle and Gabrielle Miles.
Robert retired from Tarrant County Community Supervision and Corrections Department after serving as human resources director for 20 years. Prior to working for the Tarrant County Community Supervision and Corrections Department, Robert was a science teacher and assistant principle at Nolan Catholic High School. Minnie was employed with Fort Worth Independent School District for 36 years. She taught at Benbrook Elementary and South Hills Elementary School, where she retired as a fifth-grade teacher. Minnie taught at South Hills for 31 years and was named outstanding teacher in 1997.
The Gunters have enjoyed traveling to 20 countries, 32 states in the United States, dining out and being with family and friends, especially on holidays. They are members of St. Andrews United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.
Family and friends gathered for a wonderful 50th anniversary brunch at the Fort Worth Club in downtown Fort Worth. Robert and Minnie would like to thank all of their family and friends for making this occasion a memory they will treasure forever.
