By on April 18, 2018


R. Victor and Barbara J. (Walker) Shifler, of Lititz, were married April 14, 1968. This date also happened to be Easter Sunday that year. The service was held in the presence of family and friends at the Greenvillage Lutheran Church in Chambersburg. The couple honeymooned in Williamsburg, Va.

Vic was the engineering supervisor of United Telephone Company for 20½ years, and then was called to a career of ministry. The family relocated to Lititz in 1988 when Vic became the pastor of Lititz First Church of God. He continued serving there until his retirement in 2010.

Barb enjoyed staying at home to raise their children and is currently employed by Charles F. Snyder Funeral Homes as a receptionist.

The couple has been blessed with two daughters: Nicole (Nikki) Shaffer, wife of Dave; and Courtney Richie, wife of Dave; and are the proud grandparents of five grandchildren: Blair, Brandon, Brady, Leah, and Adam.

The couple enjoys spending time with their family, attending events with their grandchildren, and traveling to the beach.

The Shiflers will celebrate their 50th anniversary with their family on a Caribbean cruise in June.
