Spotlight: Long-lasting faith

MUSKOGEE, Okla. — He’s 96. She’s 94. And they remain faithful to the Lord.

Ira and Mabel Boss have been members of the Chandler Road Church of Christ for 61 years.

They’ve been Christians even longer than that.

Mabel Boss was baptized in 1933. Ira Box, a World War II veteran, was baptized in 1943 — the year after the couple married 73 years ago.

“They attend the Chandler Road Church of Christ faithfully,” said Ramona Piearcy, the church’s administrative assistant.

The Bosses, who have two children, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, are an inspiration to the congregation, Piearcy said.
