The Magnificent Ghees

The evening of 17 July 2009 a celebration was held at Cindy's Banquet Hall in Great Falls to honor the 50th Wedding Anniversary of a remarkable couple, Frank and Mary Ghee. For the past 34 years, Frank and Mary have blessed Great Falls, Malmstrom AFB, and Union Bethel African Methodist Episcopal (A. M. E.) Church with their good works, words, and deeds. The celebration was arranged by the four Ghee daughters, Candy, Melony, Cricket, and Frankie, who also performed musical numbers and skits. A highlight of the evening was a gospel songfest by Frank and Grant Stebbins. Friends and family came from across the country to honor the Ghees. The event celebrated the many achievements of Frank and Mary ranging from raising four accomplished daughters to "saving" their A. M. E. Church. May Frank and Mary celebrate many more years of marriage and achievements!


  1. What a beautiful couple. My parents celebrated their 50th for which we kids pulled out the stops too. Wish I could have seen the Ghees' beautiful celebration too. What a wonderful black history story for Montana. Thanks for posting.

  2. Thank you Lorraine. The Ghees are very special friends.
