VANDALIA — Dianne (Cook) and Daniel Lytle celebrated 40 years of marriage at their home in Vandalia with more than 40 people in attendance.

The celebration was organized by their two children, Jessica and Matt Lytle, with the assistance of grandchildren. Allison, Abigail, Kaleb and Emma.

The couple were driven to all of their places of residence in Tipp City and Vandalia, while guests gathered at their current home to surprise them when they returned.

Their children presented Dianne with a family ring passed down from her fourth generation and Dan with a new wedding band to replace his original one that was worn out.
