On Friday, Oct. 24, 1958, Isabella C. "Bella" Dykes and Joseph E. "Joe" Mullican embarked on a lifetime commitment of love and adventure that has endured for 50 years.
The couple married in the Abbeyhill Church of Scotland on London Road in Edinburgh, Scotland. The Rev. McCaskill officiated the ceremony, and one year later, performed the christening f their first child, a daughter, Yvonne Marie.
Joe was born and reared in the little of Village of Baskin in Franklin Parish. After high school graduation, Joe entered the United States Air Force as a language specialist, where his basic job was to prevent incidents like "9/11," serving in that position for twenty years in places like Scotland, Pakistan, England and Turkey. Joe served two tours at the University of Syracuse in New York where he was tutored basic and advanced Russian language and one tour at the Army Language School in Monterey, Calif., where he was tutored in the in the Turkish language.
On his first overseas assignment he was stationed at Royal Air Force Station in Kirknewton, located just outside the capital city of Edinburgh where he also met and married his mate for life.
After retiring from the Air Force, Joe returned to school, earned a degree from he University of Southern Mississippi in accounting and embarked on another career as financial officer for a community health center for the next 21 years.
Bella also worked for a good portion of their married life as a means of earning money to buy the extras that she wanted for her home and family. During the years that she worked, Bella always managed to make sure that her house was very clean and tidy before she left for work.
Bella and Joe have two children, Yvonne and Steven, and five grandchildren, Jennifer, Travis, jack, Evelyn and Joseph.
